Upgrades and Testing Customizations in Dynamics 365 Business Central

by | Updated February 4, 2019 | Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics NAV

Dynamics 365 Business Central offers updates that require no additional software expenditures and give system admins control of upgrade time-frames. Business Central users will be contacted by Microsoft with an upgrade date. Admins can utilize the Business Central Admin Center to reschedule upgrades, or immediately install the upgrade with the “upgrade now” link.

The Admin Center also offers other features that help system admins monitor Business Central. Admins can both subscribe to notifications and assign specific notification types to applicable users. Notifications can include information about upcoming upgrades, upgrade schedules, upgrade results, and available extension upgrades.

Sandbox environments are available for testing customizations in Business Central and verifying compatibility with upcoming versions. In the April 2019 Dynamics 365 release, admins will be able to create multiple sandbox environments independent of each other. Additionally, the sandbox management experience is getting refreshed and the environment overview will display additional information and provide the ability to preview versions of the application. Admins will be able to fully test any upgrade features in the sandbox environment.

The April 2019 release also features an automated service that validates per-tenant extensions against upcoming versions of the base application and notifies the admins/developers when an incompatibility is found. Notifications will also be sent to admins when a new version of an installed AppSource app is available. The administrator can then select to upgrade the app from the extension management page on their schedule.
