The ultimate ADMIN toolbox for Business Central

As this is my first post this year, I want to start this out by wishing you all a great new year. Actually I wanted to write about a completely different topic, but Waldo’s post a few days ago gave me an idea.

In this article I describe an “Application permissions” implementation for an application that runs as a background service or daemon without a signed-in user.

Check Customer License in an OnPrem db – from the web client

I got an internal question from our consultants on how they are able to access the license information of the customer for an OnPrem customer. There are a few scenarios where that’s interesting. Just to check which license is in production. Or how many objects or users did they buy. Well – anything license wise ;-).
