Customizing 1C:Enterprise applications


The demand for software customization (modification for specific user needs) is as old as the first invented software. It is virtually impossible to write an application that suits the specific needs of all users. Thus, adding the option to customize an application without developer assistance is an idea whose time has come. And it shines in business applications because business processes can significantly differ even in enterprises that belong within the same field of business.

How to debug a solution on mobile 1C:Enterprise platform

Setting up and connecting the debugger for debugging configurations on the mobile platform.


This was my first experience with the new debugging mechanism, which first appeared on the platform 8.3.7 (debug via HTTP).

What we need for this exercise:

  • Desktop platform 1C:Enterprise 8.3 (
  • Mobile Platform (beta)
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard + Apache 2.2
  • Android 6.0.1 (Sony Z5 compact)

Note. For the purity of the experiment, I always recommend using a clean server with a static external IP. For example, Amazon Cloud (AWS) or Microsoft Azure Cloud provide you new server in minutes that is ideal for testing. It will cost you no more than $10-20.

Interface usability in 1C Enterprise platform 8.3.8 and 8.3.9

We have prepared a number of changes that should make the interface 1C:Enterprise more convenient and enhance its usability. It is known that the user experience is affected not only the big, fundamental solutions, but also a significant number of “little things”, which constantly faces the user. In versions 8.3.8 and 8.3.9, we decided to collect some “inconvenient trifles”, and improve it work.

The width of the drop-down list of the input field

Implemented in version
Previously, the width of the drop-down list of the input field was constant and didn’t change during operation. When you know that the representation of the elements will be too long, you can set the desired width of the list using the properties DropListWidth. For example, Customers catalog or any other list with fixed description width.

JSON in 1C:Enterprise 8.3.6

Publications: JSON in 1C:Enterprise 8.3.6JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a text format of data exchange which is widely used in the web-applications. Compared with XML, it is more compact and occupies less space. In addition, all the browsers have the built-in tools to work with JSON.
The necessity to work with this format at the platform level is caused not only by the fact that this is a «fashionable modern» format which the application solutions of 1С:Enterprise can use by themselves for integration with third-party applications. Another reason is that JSON is widely used in the HTTP interfaces. And 1С:Enterprise just has such mechanisms in which you want to use this format. These are the application REST interface automatically generated by the platform and the HTTP-services which you can create by yourself.
