Change in URLs for Business Central Tenants

Change in base URLs for Business Central SaaS Tenants. I have noticed the Business Central links for Tenants have changed.





For Production the URL in use will be
https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/<Tenant ID>/Production

whereas earlier the URL
https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/<Tenant ID>/

For Sandbox the URL in use will be https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/<Tenant ID>/Sandbox
whereas earlier the URL was the same as current URL

This changes are mainly to distinguish between the multiple Production Tenants coming up in October with the 2019 Wave 2  Release.

For now, both the Old and New Production Tenant URLs are operational.

If you login through https://home.dynamics.com/or through Admin Center it will redirect you through the New URL.

I will keep you posted as soon as notice an updates.

I also had a word with Microsoft Support Team who recommend taking this approach.

Thus I have created a Generic Record Deletion Tool where you have to put your Table Number and Primary Keys to delete the specific record.

Record Deletion Tool : https://github.com/olisterr/Data-Deletion-Tool/blob/master/Report%2050199%20DataDeletionReport.al
Pre-requisites: Microsoft Dynamics Business Central

2. Filter records by Table No. and Primary Keys:
