Purpose: The purpose of this document is to outline some issues you may encounter when using Dynamics AX 2012 Excel Add-in for import of data and provide solutions to resolve them.
Issue: “This operation is not supported for a relative URI”.
Reason: This issue occurs because AppFabric Service Bus endpoint is not configured. AppFabric Service Bus endpoints are similar to WCF endpoints. The only difference is that specific binding are used to communicate with relay service. The ‘sb’ represents the scheme used to communicate with the AppFabric Service Bus. The scheme can be either ‘http’ or ‘sb’ depending on the binding you are using. Endpoints can be configured in application configuration files or programmatically. Alternatively you can delete the endpoint if you don’t use it.
Dynamics AX Error
Solution: Please delete or configure ‘sb’ endpoint. ‘sb’ endpoint has no address defined which is treated by Dynamics AX Excel Add-in as relative URI. Below I show how to delete ‘sb’ endpoint.
Microsoft Dynamics AX Configuration Utility
Opening Microsoft Service Configuration Editor dialog
