AX 2012: Building a DefaultDimension/LedgerDimension

Below you'll find a code example of how to generate a RecId of type DefaultDimension for several dimensions.
Subsequently, these DefaultDimension is combined with a main account to RecId of type LedgerDimension.

static void buildDefaultAndLedgerDimension(Args _args)
{
    DimensionAttributeValueSetStorage dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage;
    DimensionAttribute dimensionAttribute;
    DimensionAttributeValue dimensionAttributeValue;
    DimensionDefault dimensionDefault;
    LedgerDimensionAccount ledgerDimensionAccount;

    dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage = new DimensionAttributeValueSetStorage();

    // BusinessUnit
    dimensionAttribute = DimensionAttribute::findByName('BusinessUnit');
    if(dimensionAttribute)
    {
        dimensionAttributeValue = DimensionAttributeValue::findByDimensionAttributeAndValue(dimensionAttribute, '069', false, true);
        dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage.addItem(dimensionAttributeValue);
    }

    // CostCenter
    dimensionAttribute = DimensionAttribute::findByName('CostCenter');
    if(dimensionAttribute)
    {
        dimensionAttributeValue = DimensionAttributeValue::findByDimensionAttributeAndValue(dimensionAttribute, '010', false, true);
        dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage.addItem(dimensionAttributeValue);
    }

    // Department
    dimensionAttribute = DimensionAttribute::findByName('Department');
    if(dimensionAttribute)
    {
        dimensionAttributeValue = DimensionAttributeValue::findByDimensionAttributeAndValue(dimensionAttribute, '024', false, true);
        dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage.addItem(dimensionAttributeValue);
    }
 
    dimensionDefault = dimensionAttributeValueSetStorage.save();

    // Merge main account and source dimension values and return RecId which can be used as ledgerDimension
    ledgerDimensionAccount = DimensionDefaultingService::serviceCreateLedgerDimension(DimensionStorage::getDefaultAccountForMainAccountNum("110110"),
                                                                                      dimensionDefault);

    info(strFmt("Default dimension recId: %1", dimensionDefault));
    info(strFmt("DefaultDimension (Source RecId): %1 LedgerDimension (Merged RecId): %2", dimensionDefault, ledgerDimensionAccount));
}

This post is part of the series »Dynamics AX 2012 - Financial dimensions«

In Dynamics AX 2012, the handling of financial dimensions has changed. Both on the surface and the underlying data model.

In earlier versions you find one field - usually named dimension - of type array. Now you'll find a field derived from RecId called DefaultDimension (or similar).

In this series I want to specifically address these changes and present one or the other piece of code.
