CodeCop rule for testing field length (TableRelation)

If a new field is created, having a table relation, the field datatype/length is set. If the related table definition is changed, e.g. increase of related (key) field length from code 10 to code 20, the fields having a table relation should be increased as well. Describe the solution you'd like:...

A OnRoleCenterOpen event from platform

In BC12 there where an event in Codeunit 1, OnRoleCenterOpen, that was triggered from the platform. The event was a bit special since it was called for every user when they where opening the role center, but if an error happened in the subscriber, the error was suppressed. It was mainly designed ...

If you have a procedure that has multiple overloads (so, for example, same procedure name but different parameters), then if you want to add a new statement somewhere else in your code calling one of these procedures utilizing the IntelliSense will always only show a single procedure and not all ...

This is already mostly supported, but with a different command (Ctrl+Shift+Space) for triggering parameter hints.

We are still lacking showing that overloads exist ("+x overload(s)") in signature help. We will track that in this

Extend AL workspace to cover launch information

VS Code workspaces can save lauch information. Yet this is not implemented for AL. So in order to retrieve symbols in a workspace or publish out of a workspace we are still required to put a launch.json in every extension in a workspace. This is a nuisance and in many scenarions actually not nee...

Thank you for your feedback. We have added this in minor update 2 for 2022 Release Wave 2. 

AL developers are now able to add a launch property to their code-workspace or settings.json file.
  • A workspace launch configuration overrides the launch configuration specified in the global settings.json file.
  • A local launch.json file overrides the workspace and global configuration. 
 In case that the local launch.json file doesn't contain a valid AL launch configuration, we'll try to find one in the code-workspace first, and then in the settings.json files. However, if the launch property is specified in the code-workspace file even without specifying a valid AL configuration, the global settings.json file will not be able to override it.

IntelliSense for actions Promoted Categories

It would be fantastic if I could see the caption of the promoted category instead of the current ones (Category4, Category5 ...).

Thank you for your feedback. Given that 2022 release wave 2 introduces new support for working with promoted actions, which include action groups with names (and include code actions to convert from old to new format), then we are not going to invest more in the "old" ways of promoting actions, including the promoted categories (side-by-side support still retained).

Thank you for your feedback. We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the following reason: 
1) for security reasons, we cannot give free access to the database. 
2) for performance and stability reasons, we need to be able to control the joins sent to the database

What we are doing instead in every release is to invest in making the Business Central data stack better and more performant.
