Restart environment services

You can use the Restart services functionality in Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) to restart individual services that are associated with a Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, or Tier 5 standard acceptance test (sandbox) environment of the Self-service type. You can use this functionality to restart the following services:

  • Finance and operations apps service - This includes the X++ runtime, as well as batch functinality.
  • Data management service - This is also known as the Data Import/Export service.
  • Financial reporting service - Used to generate financial statements.

Any user who has been added as a project owner, organization admin, or environment manager in an LCS project has permissions to use this functionality.

Restart a specific service

To restart a specific service in a deployed environment, follow these steps.

  1. In LCS, open the appropriate project, and select the environment to restart the service for.

  2. On the Environment details page, select Maintain > Restart services.

  3. In the Restart a service dialog box, select the service to restart, and then select OK.

    The Environment state value is updated when the service is restarted.

  4. To view the updated status, refresh the page.


    Because restart of a service might require only a few seconds, the Environment state value might already have been reset to Deployed. When the restart is completed, an entry is added to the History page.
