    Administrators can use the new Business Central Admin Center to create a Sandbox based on the production environment. This feature is not available using the original way of creating the Sandboxes – take a look to my old post here:

    Once you have the sandbox created, you can connect your VSCode environment to it and publish your extension to be tested.

    Restrictions for a Sandbox created from the production environment:
    – The job queue is automatically stopped.
    – Any base application integration settings are disabled or cleared. Caution should be taken to not integrate with production services unless intended.
    – Users will be copied as well, with same permissions as in production.
    – Outbound HTTP calls from extensions are blocked by default and must be approved per extension. When an extension makes an outbound call a dialogue to the user appears.
    – Any GDPR action must be handled separately and repeated for the sandbox, there is no synchronization with the production environment after the sandbox has been created.

    “Business Central Admin Center” link




    You can login directly from<Tenant ID>/admin

    or from CSP Partner portal



    If the environment is not created with production data, it will have default demo data. The sandbox environment will not be accessible until the State shows Active.



    • Telemetry
    • Notifications
    • Upgrade Windows


    The Business Central administration center provides telemetry for the tenant environments to enable troubleshooting and support for the tenant.


    When either a major or minor update of Business Central has been applied to an environment, an email notification is sent to notify recipients that the upgrade has completed successfully. The notification is sentto all email addresses listed in the Notification recipients list of the Business Central administration center. The list is managed manually by adding and removing recipients to ensure the right individuals are notified of the event.


    The upgrade window for an environment defines a window of time during the day in which the environment is allowed to be upgraded. When major and minor updates are rolled out to Business Central tenants, the update will only be applied to an environment within the time frame defined for the upgrade window, helping ensure that updates are applied outside of the customer’s business hours.

    Becoming a Versatile Microsoft Dynamics Consultant: Combining Functional and Technical Skill Sets

    I’ve been working as a Microsoft Dynamics consultant for a number of years now, and I love my job. But back when I first started out, I remember feeling a bit unsure about how to classify myself. Was I a big picture person, or a tech expert? I even remember my supervisor asking me early on what sort of resource I would be for the company. Did I provide functional or technical expertise?

    At the time, it felt like there was an expectation for me to choose one or the other. But over the past few years, I’ve opted to toe the line in between the two -- and I believe the combination of functional and technical skills have made me a major asset.

    Here’s the thing when it comes to being a Microsoft Dynamics consultant: no two days are ever the same. One day, you’re going over reports and charts with a client. The next, you’re doing database work and updating product data. Few careers offer so much variety, which is all the more reason to draw on both functional and technical skill sets as part of your career development. And while I’ve mostly worked with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the same is true for other Dynamics applications, including Dynamics ERP.

    Improving Processes with Functional Consulting

    What do I mean by “functional consulting,” exactly? It’s difficult to sum up in a few words, but suffice it to say that this area is all about the big picture. A functional consultant interacts with clients, attends meetings, gives presentations, and collaborates with teams in order to enhance current business processes. Rather than just working under the hood at the technical level, you develop a broad understanding over how a client’s organization works. You can then utilize that understanding in developing custom solutions for that client.

    How exactly is functional consulting different from technical work, though? Don’t you still need the technical in order to implement the functional? Yes, you absolutely do. But it’s a bit more complicated than that.

    An example will help illustrate what I mean here. Consider the following CRM scenario. A client wants to make a change to their existing CRM system. Their current system only allows for country-level details for contacts, and they want to add further functionality. For example, they want to replace the option “England” on a contact drop-down menu with multiple choices -- let’s say “London” and “Manchester.”

    From a functional standpoint, there’s one thing going on here:

    • Update the drop-down list and replace “England” with “London” and “Manchester”

    Pretty simple, right? But the technical team has more to consider. They have to:

    • Update the field on the back-end
    • Check to make sure reports are updated with the new value
    • Update all existing data
    • Test to ensure the change is working
    • Promote the change to the live system

    From the functional perspective, this change is quite small. You’re just replacing an item in a drop-down menu, right? But on the back-end, there are a lot of moving parts to consider. People with functional skills have a lot to offer, but often overlook the complexity of these types of requests. That’s why it’s so useful to have both functional and technical skills.

    Managing the Back-End and Front-End: Technical Consulting Skills

    Like functional consultants, technical experts bring their own range of expertise to the table: they understand data, development, integrations, cloud deployment principles, and more. There are lots of technical details to manage, which means it’s easy to get lost in the minutiae and forget about the big picture.

    Someone with functional capabilities in addition to technical knowledge can find a balance between these two arenas. They can bring technical skills to the table while still understanding the end goals that an organization might have.

    Balancing the Technical and the Functional

    Think for a moment about all of the different roles you might need to play as a consultant on any given day. The client will lean on you in all sorts of ways: they may want you to be a project manager or business analyst one day, only to ask you development and data migration questions the next. But what do all of these tasks have in common? At the end of the day, they’re all necessary if you want to help the client achieve their goals.

    By understanding both the functional and technical aspects of Microsoft Dynamics 365, I’ve been able to offer my clients both back-end expertise as well as big picture strategic assistance. The more you manage to diversify your own skill set, the more of an asset you’ll be to your own clients.

    Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

    The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

    Now that we have Integration Manager installed, we can run it.

    Running Integration Manager as administrator is required to ensure that relevant permissions are correctly set; the license key also needs to be installed.

    Launch Integration Manager from the Windows Start menu by right-clicking and selecting Run as Administrator. Once it has started, a Register Now/Later dialog will be displayed. Click Register Now:

    Integration Manager - Run Now

    Enter the Site Name and the Key strings and then click OK:

    Security is of course very important when dealing with customer data. One way to safeguard customer data is to sign out of Dynamics when not using it. When using the tablet app, the sign out button is not immediately visible.

    To sign out from the tablet app:

    1.    From the Menu Bar, click on the Home Icon


    2.    In the bottom right corner, click on ellipsis (…) button.

    3.    Select Settings and click on Sign Out


    This way, you can be sure you’ve safeguarded your customer data.
