Introduction: Today, I was playing around with Business Central Modern Client (Windows App).
Out of curiosity I was trying to login to one of my NAV 2017 through SSO.
Pre-requisites: Microsoft Dynamics NAV with SSO configured
Microsoft Dynamics Business Central
Demonstration: 1. Business Central App - Main Page:

Clicking on locally hosted service and putting in the credentials configured for NAV 2017 SSO, we get.
Still skeptical when Business Central login into NAV.

2. Business Central App - Reverse compatible with NAV 2017:

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.
