Business value

Service-to-service authentication for the tenant administration center API will make it easier to manage environments in multiple Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenants without having to manually reauthenticate for each Azure AD tenant. Automating frequently used operations, such as update scheduling or AppSource app management, will be a significant time-saver for your support team.

Feature details

In this release, we add service-to-service (S2S) authentication for the Business Central administration center API. This way, admins can run lifecycle operations across all environments in all Azure AD tenants that they manage in one go, without having to reauthenticate for each customer they manage.
