What is Admin Center in Business Central on Cloud? How to use it and what are the implications?
Admin Center is one of the newest features of Business Central On Cloud. Here, you can manage your environments and performs tasks related to your environment.

Copying of Production on Sandbox:


Notification Recipient:
Notification Recipient is a person to notify in case there are some things to notify the user about. I thought it was with regards to Sandbox Upgradation but I didn’t get any updates during, before or after graduation. In fact, even when the Sandbox was not working it did not send an email.


Telemetry:
Telemetry shows the logs of Events that were triggered and shows the list of errors. Telemetry also shows which Codeunits were executed and at what time. This is a cool tool to know if there are any errors occurring when running your sandbox/production. It is like an Event Log for Business Central


Conclusion:
Thus using Admin Center you can get details about the Business Central. You can manage different environments, copy Production environment into Sandbox and Monitor the environments

TIP: Working with changing Field DataTypes and Deleting fields in Business Central

Introduction:
Imagine a scenario where as per the requirements provided by your clients, you have set up the Database structure in NAV/Business Central.

Pre-requisites:

Books & References:

In order to deploy this deleted change, you need to mention this field, table, and keys with Obsolete State Removed.

How to actually use Profile Objects in Business Central

To 'Whomsoever This May Concern',
When I was working on a Production Deployment for one of my clients, I noticed that I could not create a Profile in Business Central Production Tenant. I was able to create new Profile in Sandbox.


Then I tried using configuration Package and modify the contents of 2000000178 Profile Table and as always configuration package blocked it.



There was no way of dealing with this other thancontacting Microsoft Support and this is the answer I get from a Support Engineer

I was on the verge to give my clients a link pointing to a specific page i.e https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/?page=50150

After being a little creative, I figured out that developing profile objects might help.

And this resolved this issue for me.

Introduction:
Issues when you deploy your app in Business Central Production VS Business Central Sandbox. Let us what are the implications of the statement.
In my last blog () I have already pointed out the difference in Profile as to how can create new Profile in Business Central Sandbox but the same is not possible in Business Central Production.
Pre-requisite:
Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (SaaS)
Demonstration: 1. I was working with General Journals after deploying the App in Production Environment. Suddenly during posting I go this error.


2. To Verify this issue is not of Permission Set, I gave the User SUPER Permission and tried again.

I got the same error despite giving SUPER Permission. Again the same the error, so I checked the Effective Permissions.

I noticed that Table G/L Entry has an Indirect Permission. I replicated the same Production in Sandbox. But I didn’t find any issue like this.

3. Moreover, I noticed that when I uninstall the App, the Production works perfectly and …
