Managing Sessions in the Admin Center


Azure Active Directory is now Microsoft Entra ID. Learn more

For each environment in the Business Central administration center, you can use the Manage Sessions page to view information about active sessions on an environment and cancel selected sessions.

To open the page, select Manage Sessions. Use the Show session details check box to show more or fewer details.

Cancel sessions

Canceling a session is sometimes the only way to unblock a customer. For example, a long-running report is locking data in a table, preventing warehouse employees from working.

To cancel a session, select it from the list and then select Cancel selected sessions.

Restart environment

In some cases, canceling the sessions does not solve the problem. In those cases, you may want to restart the environment.

To restart an environment that is causing problems for you, go to the Manage Sessions page, choose the relevant environment, and then choose the Restart Environment action.


Make sure that all users are signed out of all companies in the environment before you restart it.
