Updating an arbitrary read-only field in a configuration table in may pose a challenge in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, especially in the production environment.
Many options may only be set once, for example the Use warehouse management processes mode of a warehouse, or the Revenue recognition accounting rule in a project group. Yet the data export / import both in D365FO and AX2012 may bypass the AOS validation as long as a data entity exists.
Here is how: open the Data management workspace and create an Export data project. Pick the respective data entity. Optionally, reduce the number of exported fields in the mapping to the minimum: the entity key and the read-only parameter in question.
Export the data, download the ZIP data package, extract the Excel file and amend the parameter in the file as desired. Then re-pack the ZIP data package with the updated file (replace the original), create an Import data project, upload and import the package. With a high probability the Data management engine is going to bypass any application logic and update the existing record without further asking.
As a matter of fact, this method is even more brutal than the table browser (RIP, dear table browser, you are truly missed), since it ignores field properties set at the table metadata level and breaks the database consistency.
