Printing from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on SaaS environments to local printers requires user involvement through the browser to select a printer, as there’s no connection between your system and the printer at the end of your desk.
Our PrintNode app uses the 3rd party printing service PrintNode to bridge the gap between a Business Central system hosted in the cloud and local printing to allow printing without user involvement.
When you sign up with an account to PrintNode you are provided with an API key.
By obtaining an API Key from the Hosted service provided by PrintNode, you can install the PrintNode client on your network and the app allows you to browse to printers and printer trays available to print to.
Our app then submits the print job along with your unique API key associated with your account, and is processed by the PrintNode Service.
From v15.3 of Business Central and v1.1.0 of our app Printer Selections are also supported.
Note that documents up to a size of 7.5MB can be submitted to Clever PrintNode Integration to be printed.
PrintNode supports printing PDF or raw e.g. ZPL, EPL file formats. Other formats will be accepted but not processed.
In order to get PrintNode Integration up and running in a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central environment you will need to add the Foundation License range to your license.
The On Prem Printing app requires the foundation License range (9030159 – 9031158) to be added to your license.
