New Functionality In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 2: Cloud Migration Data Upgrade for Extensions

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 2.

The third of the new functionality in the governance and administration section is cloud migration data upgrade for extensions.

Extension data can now be migrated and upgraded to the cloud using the cloud migration tool.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
General Availability: October 2022

Many customers migrating from on-premises installations use the cloud migration tool to migrate their data to Dynamics 365 Business Central in the cloud. The cloud migration tool migrates data to the cloud and allows you to keep it in sync with the on-premises environment by using replication runs. Once you’re ready to switch to the cloud environment, you run data upgrade to convert the data to the cloud environment’s table and field structure.

In this release wave, Microsoft have hardened the data upgrade step. It’s now faster, more transparent, more resilient, and runs extension upgrade codeunits. After triggering the data upgrade from the Cloud Migration Management page, you can follow its progress from the admin center and using Application Insights telemetry emitted to the resource set up on the cloud environment. Any data belonging to extensions installed on the environment will be upgraded along with data belonging to the base application. In case data upgrade fails, the environment will automatically be restored to the state just before data upgrade was triggered, so you can act on any errors surfaced in telemetry without having to start from scratch.
