Cumulative Update 16 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central October'18 on-premises (Application Build 40469, Platform Build 40427)

Applies to: Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-premises)

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

Overview


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

Why this new license?

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

The new licenses are required for cumulative update 1 and later versions of Business Central and are not backwards compatible with earlier versions 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 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Pricing and Licensing for more information.

This cumulative update includes all hotfixes and regulatory features that have been released for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, including hotfixes and regulatory features that were released in previous cumulative updates.

This cumulative update replaces previously released cumulative updates. You should always install the latest cumulative update.

It may be necessary to update your license after implementing this hotfix to gain access to new objects included in this or a previous cumulative update (this only applies to customer licenses).
