Business value

Business Central makes it easy to move one company's setup to another company in the same environment. You can also synchronize master data between the companies.

Feature details

Master data management is intended for scenarios where you want to move the setup in one company to another company in the same environment. It's also built as a data synchronization engine that lets you keep data in the companies synchronized after the initial move.

The following capabilities are added for managing master data:

  • Moving master data works when a company subscribes to data from another company.
  • You can define the tables and fields to synchronize. For more control over the synchronization, you can filter on table records. You can also set up more advanced synchronization couplings.
  • Changes in the main company are immediately pulled to the receiving companies by the job queue.
  • Users in the receiving company can review synchronization logs.

You enable the master data management feature from the Master Data Management Setup page, where you can also access the synchronization tables and logs, and can initiate synchronizations.
