Use Azure Active Directory groups to manage access to Dynamics 365 Business Central environments.

Feature details

To manage access at the environment level, it's now possible to add an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) group to the environment in the Business Central admin center. By assigning an Azure AD group to an environment, members of that Azure AD group will be synchronized to Business Central and granted access to that environment.

The use of Azure AD groups brings the following main benefits:

  • Central management of access in general through Azure AD groups.
  • Only the users in the relevant Azure AD group are imported into the environment.
