I just noticed an important change in Business Central licensing policy today. So I’ll share it briefly in this post.
The change was published in the Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide last December.
First, by November 2022:
Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide | November 2022:
Business Central, licensed by assigned user, is available with Essentials or Premium levels of capabilities. You may license users either with an Essentials license or a Premium license, but not both.
On page 7:
Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide | December 2022
Business Central, licensed by assigned user, is available with Essentials or Premium levels of capabilities. Customers may deploy Business Central Essentials and Business Central Premium in separate environments, on the same tenant.
On page 7:
And Microsoft removed the following service specific term in Microsoft Product Terms.
So, we can now deploy Essentials and Premium licenses on the same tenant, as long as the environments are different 🎉🎊.
Great update, give it a try!!!😁

Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading.
