LCS export tier 2 data to asset library in BAK format

We have developers and analysts who have local VMs as well as tier 1 cloud environments we would like to regularly refresh with Production data. The current process is lengthy and cumbersome, and makes it impossible to be pro-active when trying to investigate urgent issues in Production. 1) re...

Thank you for your feedback.

We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the following reason: Azure SQL platform only supports exporting a database schema and data in the .bacpac format.  Traditional .BAK format is not available.  To quickly troubleshoot data from PROD, you can use the documentation here:

Cancel Cloud-Hosted Environment deployment when only in Queue

Occasionally when I add a new environment to the deployment queue (under Cloud-Hosted Environments) in LCS, I notice a typing error in the name, and I would like to cancel out the request. With MS Hosted, you can always remove the "Sign Off" to cancel it out, but on your own Cloud-Hosted, ther...

Change default LCS methodology

As we are seeing more opportunities to upgrade from AX2012 to D365 F&O, it would be beneficial to be able to change the default methodology to the Upgrade methodology instead of the default Implementation plan. There are some task that would be performed in both, but the upgrade steps are ...

 Thank you for your feedback.

We released this feature as part of the functionality in April 2019 as part of the ONE version features. LCS will now surface an announcement when a new release is made available along with a link to the whats new documentation. In addition, there is a new feature that will enable you to gauge the impact of the changes in the form of an impact analysis report. It will compare your usage against the areas where the maximum code churn is to tell you the areas where you need to focus your testing in.

Please refer to the following link for more information.

LCS: automate the environment restart in LCS when a known issue is found in the DP installation process

Sometimes the Deployable Packages fail because the environment is using some file that the application/installation process requires but is blocked and the only way to unblock is restarting the environment. In this cases, the LCS could restart the environment automatically and complete the pac...

Thank you for your feedback.

We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the following reason: This is a corner case where due to some issue during package deployment the environment needs to be restarted. For non-production environments like sandbox and dev/test you have the option to stop and start the environment from LCS (which is equivalent to a reboot) or do a restart of the service as well. For production environment, if there is an issue someone from Microsoft Tier 1 is engaged to investigate the issue and roll forward or rollback. In that case a reboot of the machine might not help.

LCS Environment Monitoring - Raw Logs - Increase data refresh timing

The ability to review raw logs based on an activity ID within D365FO is great, but the fact that you need to wait about 10 minutes until you can actually search for the activity ID is very challenging. System admins typically going to use these tools when troubleshooting a problem, and there i...

LCS Dynamics should reflect the proper VM name

If you deploy both the build and dev machines into a single environment, the Login dropdown does not show which application you're about start. It should reflect the VM name in the selection option value.

Hello 

Thank you for reaching out.

This topology (of deploying dev and build into a single environment) is no longer supported and hence this issue is no longer reproduceable.
