By: Andrey Baludin

Overview of this book

This book features all the information you need to get started with administrating Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Online. It contains detailed information about the admin portal and cloud migration process, all based on real usage experience. The book starts by covering the data migration process for developers, which will show you how to organize the data without code. You’ll also learn how the admin portal can be useful if you want to export a database copy, restore a backup, and set up telemetry to get detailed information about the call stack and operation statuses. As you progress, you’ll learn how to check your Business Central SaaS environment details, create new and different types of environments, and notifications, and keep your cloud data within limits. Later, you’ll explore how to set up cloud migration from an on-premise environment to SaaS, run the migration, upgrade data, and fix problems if something goes wrong. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to create new production and sandbox environments, restore them from backups, analyze environment telemetry, and confidently migrate your data to the cloud.

To conclude, I can say that the project was definitely worth it. We dived deep into a new technology, which worked as expected, despite issues that occurred during the exploitation. The customer got exactly what they wanted and saved money. We got a huge amount of experience in using Business Central without writing a single line of code.

I hope that this story inspired you to use non-standard ways of task resolution. Business Central developers must not be limited to using only Business Central. They must know how to use as many Microsoft products as they can. Azure, Dataverse, Cloud Migration, Power BI – they all help you to complete some tasks much faster than you would be able to by writing a hundred lines of AL code.

In this book, I tried to collect everything that a Business Central specialist needs for the administration or migration of an environment to the cloud. I will be happy if someday I see this book on somebody's table. Thanks for having me...
