Last week, the preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2021 release wave 1 (BC18) is available. Learn more: https://yzhums.com/10601/.
In this post, I would like to share two pieces of information about Dynamics 365 Business Central 2021 release wave 1 (BC18).
The following information is recorded in Update 17.5 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central online 2020 release wave 2.
1. OData V3 will be removed with 2021 Wave 1
As previously announced, OData Version 3.0 (V3) has been deprecated since April 2020 and support for it will be removed in Dynamics 365 Business Central 2021 release wave 1. OData V4 is the current recommended version of OData and current integrations needs to move to OData V4. To identify incoming OData V3 requests, enable and use the Web Service Request telemetry that’s available to partners. Notifications has also been sent via M365 Message Center to tenants with identified usage.
On the Web Services page in BC18 Preview environment: Odata URL has been removed.
PS: In BC17.5
2. It’s time to switch your Dynamics 365 Business Central browser to Microsoft Edge
On April 2, 2021, Microsoft will remove Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge Legacy browsers from the list of supported browsers for the Business Central modern clients. Read the details, how it applies to you and actions to take here.
BC18: Can’t open Business Central with IE
BC17.5: You can still open Business Central with IE, but there will be an alert message.
Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading.
