Admin Center for Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (SaaS)

Introduction:
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.

Demonstration:
To goto Admin Centre, visit the URL
https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/<TENANTID>admin
To visit the Admin Centre you should have the Global Administrator permission in Office 365.

Environments:
Here you can see a list of Environments.

You cannot Create to Delete the production environment. Only you can Create or Delete Sandbox Environments.


Viewing details of the Environment: 
Click on the Environment Name

Upgrade Settings:
You can set the Time to auto upgrade your Tenant 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

Still skeptical when Business Central login into NAV.

Generic way of Attaching Documents on any Record of the Page in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central - Template Code

Problem Statement: In Microsoft Business Central, there is a way to attach attachments only on Documents or Master Table records. But, what if this requirement is for other tables such as Opportunities, custom tables, etc. Introduction: I have seen many developers afraid to touch the attachment-related customization as it seems complicated.
Well, I have found a solution and here it goes.
In this blog, I'm attempting to create a generic template for code that needs to have an attachment feature on any table that you like using AL Code.
This means that you simply cannot copy-paste the same code for all the tables but a simple change in variable sub-type will ease your work significantly
