Business value

Simplify and streamline the process of updating apps in the Business Central admin center by allowing the service to automatically install and update app dependencies.

Feature details

The Business Central admin center provides administrators with an overview of the apps that are installed for each Business Central environment, and can help them identify which apps have updates (newer versions) available and install the updates at a convenient time.

In some scenarios, however, updating an app might require updating or installing other apps that it depends on. In such cases, the update of the main app will probably stop until the dependencies are updated or installed, which adds steps that can slow the update process. In this release, we're introducing an option that lets admins review dependencies before updating, and automate any steps that are needed.
