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

In today's blog, we will be diving deeply into the validation of the data passed through the API endpoint, how it enters into the source tables and is manipulated to be inserted/modified into single or multiple tables.
Also, I will be demonstrating how APIs are to be used.

Creating APIs in Business Central - 1

Introduction:
While writing a blog on Automated Testing in Business Central, I was going through sample apps provided by Microsoft and realized that the complexity is nowhere close to what examples Microsoft has provided on docs.microsoft.com. In this blog, I will try to explain how APIs work and how to be creative with the implementation. Also, an API which were in beta are finally out with version V1.0 in the April 2019 release let's see some important key things from development aspects.
This blog is going to be theoretical one kindly bear with me.

Note that Extensible means that the Enum Object can be extended in another module. By default, this property is set to TRUE.



Enums and Enum Extensions behave differently. They follow a different number se…
