Every once in a while, I see some questions on the Business Center forum about what the Team Members license can do. So in this post I would like to share some info about Dynamics 365 Business Central Team Members license.
If you are working with OnPrem customers having Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, you have already noticed the new license file format .bclicense. It was created by Microsoft to have modern way how to pass the licensing info without limits of the old .flf format (limited max size etc.).
I publish a simple APP that allows you to see not Used objects compared to those assigned in customer license (useful on BC On-premise).
For example, the customer can extract the list of all objects loaded in the APP as customizations. Even if the objects numbered 50000 are practically free to use for the Cloud, the Onpremise ones are licensed; with a specific report it is possible to identify those already used with respect to those assigned.
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 ;-).
Again this week I met consultants that didn’t know that it is possible to update the license-file in a servicetier without restarting the servicetier and thereby kicking all users off.
I have blogged about that in a previous post: Tips for Wizards in Dynamics NAV and 365 Business Central, but most surprisingly, not everybody has read that post
So, here it is again, but this time with a twist.
