What if I need to rerun an existing batch?

Rerunning an Existing Batch

There might be a rare case where you have previously run a batch, and you wish to run that batch against your Dynamics 365 software again. For example, you might have run a batch successfully, only to have the Dynamics 365 software require to be restored from a backup, thus losing all of the changes. In this case, you’d want to rerun the batch.

One way to do this would be to use the Accounting Interface screen in Manage to delete the batch, but this means that you would have to carefully select the transactions again, which could be error-prone.

Another possibility is to click the “Rerun Existing Batch” tab in the integration program. In this tab, you would type in the Batch ID, then click “Run” rerun the batch. The batch is then rerun against the Dynamics 365 database.

WARNING: While this can be useful, this feature can be used to duplicate transactions in the Dynamics 365 system. This could occur if the transactions created in the Dynamics 365 system, as a result of the first run of the batch, still exist in the Dynamics 365 system when the batch is rerun! Use caution when rerunning batches!
