Feature details

Customers with larger databases that include more companies struggle to export data in the .bacpac format for troubleshooting, data analysis, and long-term data retention purposes. In such cases, the database export often times out due to insufficient resources allocated to this operation by Azure. With this release we are shipping a more reliable solution for the database export, which allows exporting much larger databases.

The experience of this feature in the Business Central admin center and the API call for this operation to stay exactly the same.
