Welcome to the MicroStrategy Function Plug-in Wizard

The MicroStrategy Function Plug-in Wizard (FP Wizard) is an add-in to the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ software development environment. It allows you to create a C++ project, that implements your own custom functions, which can be added to your MicroStrategy Business Intelligence platform. 

Once the FP Wizard is installed, a new template will be available for your C++ projects. New C++ projects can be created using this template and the FP Wizard will allow you to specify all the relevant details, such as capturing each function's signature (inputs/outputs/properties). Once you finish entering the information about your function, the FP Wizard will create a C++ project with all code necessary for MicroStrategy to pass inputs to your functions and consume the results. All you need to do is add the function execution code, compile and deploy your DLL to MicroStrategy.
