Feature details

This release adds an option for admins to rename environments in the Business Central admin center. The new option is related to the point-in-time restore feature, which we are also shipping in this release wave. Renaming an environment can be convenient in the initial phases of the implementation projects, when customers might be dissatisfied with the default name that was assigned to their environment during setup, or when an administrator wants to restore an environment and, accordingly, must rename the original environment to prevent it from being used. The new name will be applied to the environment immediately, so the administrators must make sure they plan all the necessary communications about the new name well in advance.

The renaming of an environment will be logged and shown in the operations log of the Business Central admin center.
