AlternateKey Property of Index in AX 2012

Hi All ,

Can anyone tell me what the use of AlternateKey in Ax2012 is? and I was not able to select/see indexe(s) in PrimaryKey property of table until i put/changed AlternateKey property as YES of indexe(s) which created in the same table.

What is reason?

Thanks,

Siva

That’s by design. By marking an index as alternate, you say that it would make sense to use it as primary key. It may not be true for all unique indices - maybe you add some index just to enforce some business rule, but the key is not a logical identification of records in the table.
