Cumulative Update 18 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central October'18 on-premises (Application Build 41909, Platform Build 41879)

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.
 

An information disclosure vulnerability exists if Microsoft Dynamics Business Central/NAV on-premises does not correctly hide the value of a masked field when it displays the records as a chart page. To learn more about the vulnerability, go to CVE-2020-1018.

This update also addresses a vulnerability that is related to the  NAVRecordState state. To learn more about the vulnerability, go to CVE-2020-1022.

Overview


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


Why this new license?

In cumulative update 1 (CU1), we enabled new licensing scenarios so that Business Central is optimized for licenses that have named users. This was not fully supported in the RTM version that was made available on October 1, 2018. Therefore, CU1 requires a new license. You can pull new licenses when you upgrade customers to CU1.

The new licenses are required for CU1 and later versions of Business Central. They are not backwards compatible with earlier versions of Business Central.

 

What has changed?

 

In CU1, Business Central supports the product line IDs 49, 74, 75, and 76 for named users. For more information, see Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Pricing and Licensing.

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 you install this hotfix to gain access to new objects that are included in this or a previous cumulative update. (This applies only to customer licenses.)

For a list of cumulative updates that were released for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, see 
released cumulative updates for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Cumulative updates are intended for new and existing customers who are running Microsoft Dynamics Released Cumulative Updates for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Important

 

We recommend that you contact your Microsoft Dynamics Partner before you install hotfixes or updates. It is important to verify that your environment is compatible with the hotfixes or updates that will be installed. A hotfix or update may cause interoperability issues with customizations and third-party products that work together with your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central solution.
