Business value

Ensure that the apps you have installed for your environments are always up to date with the latest changes and hotfixes provided by the AppSource ISVs.

Feature details

When ISVs make new versions of their apps available on the AppSource marketplace, the partners and customer admins can discover and install the updates by using the Manage Apps page of the administration center.

The Manage Apps page can also help admins:

  • Resolve requirements for app updates.
  • Understand the apps' dependencies.
  • Analyze installation and update issues.
  • Trigger app updates.

The functionality is also available via the Business Central Administration API. The API enables partners and customer admins to do the above operations programmatically.

Note that installation of the new AppSource apps, as well as updates to per-tenant extensions (PTEs), is still managed from the in-product Extensions Management page.
