Business value

A support engineer can now easily find data in telemetry for a given user. This makes troubleshooting much easier.

Feature details

The Business Central platform will emit a pseudo user ID to telemetry. This will allow a troubleshooter to identify which data in telemetry corresponds to a given user.

The pseudo user ID is a new field on the User Card. To support good privacy practices, it is possible to rotate the pseudo user ID to remove the link from a user to the entries in telemetry.
