 For now, the consolidation of multiple legal entities in multiple Production Tenant is in backlog with no ETA provided.
Let us see if we can do it manually in some way.

Conclusion:

Thus, this blog was just to give an information of multiple Production Environment deployment, Default Subscription Capabilities and Intercompany consolidation of multiple production environments.
I shall I try to manually consolidate multiple production environments in my upcoming blogs.

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.

NAV disguised as  Dynamics 365 for Financials.

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
