Please notify us of minor environment upgrades in advance.

Currently, major version upgrades are notified in advance. However, minor version upgrades can also make Extensions unusable, so it's helpful to let us know in advance.

Grant user permissions/user groups based on Azure AD security groups for Business Central SaaS

In Business Central on-prem we can manage user permissions based on Azure AD security groups, but in the SaaS version this is not an option. If a tenant has many users it is a very time consuming task to add permissions to each user. The current process is to add a BC license to users then update...

Thanks for the feedback! This is a good idea, but isn't currently in our product roadmap. The Azure data center in which the data for the Business Central environment is located is based on the country localization selected for the environment. Much of this is based on countries' legal requirements for data storage. When doing business in specific countries, often the data is required to stay within the geographical borders of those countries. However, we'll continue to track this request for consideration in a future release of Business Central.

Thank you for your feedback. This feature is already released. But it was missing from the ToC in docs. Docs will be updated shortly. 

GET /microsoft/automation/v1.0/$metadata will show all APIs. Use extensionDeploymentStatus API to get status.
