Positive Pay Functionality Impacted by XSLT Scripting Feature Deprecation on Version 10.0.27 of Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations
Microsoft recently announced it is deprecating support for XSLT scripting in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
This will impact clients using the positive pay functionality for version 10.0.27 with a complete deprecation by 10.0.30 or Jan 31, 2023 - whichever comes first. If you are using the out-of-the-box positive pay functionality within D365 Finance and Operations, you will need to plan accordingly. There are options for short-term solutions but a permanent solution will be required once you are on version 10.0.30 or after Jan 31, 2023 – whichever comes first.
If you are on 10.0.27 or beyond, the short-term solution is to request an exception from Microsoft to turn this functionality back on. This will give you time to plan for a permanent solution.
On version 10.0.30 and beyond, the feature will not be available at all. Clients can utilize the Electronic Reporting Functionality already available. Another option is to use an ISV banking solution.
