What's new or changed in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations platform update 27 (June 2019)

Important

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is now being licensed as Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. For more information about these licensing changes, see Dynamics 365 Licensing Update.

This topic describes features that are new or changed in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations platform update 27. This version has a build number of 7.0.5286. For more information about Platform update 27, see Additional resources.

Feature Management

The Feature management experience provides a workspace where you can view, enable, disable, and schedule features that have been delivered in each release. By default, new features are turned off. You can use the workspace to turn them on and view the documentation for them.

For more information about Feature management, see Feature management overview.

Dedicated capacity to process business events

It will be no longer required to schedule the business event processing batch job to process business events. Dedicated threads are allocated to process business events by the system, which ensures faster processing of business events. The existing batch job is still available (but is not needed to run unless there are issues with dedicated capacity). If the batch job was already scheduled prior to this platform update, the batch will become ineffective and dedicated threads will take over after the update.

For more information, see Business events overview.

Cancel a running batch job

It can take a long time to cancel a batch job if the job has tasks that are currently executing. The abort option provides a system administrator or batch job manager with the ability to cancel already executing tasks for jobs if the jobs are canceled. This provides a much faster mechanism to cancel a long running job that might impact system usage in other places. For more information, see Abort an executing batch job

Extensibility enhancements

The fourth wave of platform extensibility enhancements included in Platform update 27 is documented in the April 2019 release notes. There are two enhancements detailed, with the highlight being that View extensions can now change label and help text values.

Export data from all companies to BYOD can be enabled via parameters

The functionality to enable export from all companies to BYOD can now be enabled in framework parameters in data management. Until now, this required a flight to be enabled which is no longer needed.
