  • Database movement operations: import and point-in-time restore
  • New options for sandbox environments including database imports from a developer environment to a standard user acceptance test and database point-in-time restore
  • Production point-in-time restore service requests, which is designed for customers performing destructive testing in their production environments as part of a “mock go live” activity
  • Data upgrade preview packages for Dynamics365 for Finance and Operations version 10.0 in the shared asset.

  • Implementation user role in project users screen.
  • Restart services for environments deployed using self-service deployment
  • Access for SQL database on environments deployed using self-service deployment – customers  and partners can request just-in-time access to the AX, MR (Management Reporter), and EDW (entity data warehouse) databases through LCS.
