This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics 365 BusinessCentral (on-premises deployments) for all countries and all language locales.

Overview


When you upgrade on-premises deployments to this update, you andyour customers must use a new license that convers more scenarios than the onefor the original release in October 2018.

Why this new license?

In cumulative update 1 (CU 1), we have enabled new licensingscenarios so that Business Central is optimized for licenses with named users.This was not fully supported in the RTM version that was made available onOctober 1, 2018, and that is why CU 1 requires a new license. You can pull newlicenses when you upgrade customers to CU 1.

The new licenses are required for cumulative update 1 and laterversions of Business Central and are not backwards compatible with earlierversions of Business Central.

What has changed?

With CU 1, Business Central supports the product line IDs 49,74, 75, and 76 for named users. See MicrosoftDynamics 365 Business Central Pricing and Licensing for more information.
