Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23): Automatically update AppSource apps with minor updates (Apps Update Cadence)

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 wave 2 (BC23) is generally available. More details: General availability: Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 release wave 2 (BC23).

I will continue to test and share some new features that I hope will be helpful.

Automatically update AppSource apps with minor updates:

Business value:
With this release wave, it’s easier to make sure that apps installed in an environment are always up to date with the latest version.

For Appsource extension, you already can update individual apps from the App Management page in the Business Central admin center.

Or wait for your environment to receive a major update that will automatically update AppSource. (To avoid major update failures, all AppSource Extensions will be automatically updated during a major update)

In 2023 release wave 2 (BC23), Microsoft is introducing an environment-level setting that automatically updates all installed apps with every minor update, and lets you schedule individual app updates to take place during the environment’s update window: Apps Update Cadence

AppSource apps update automatically when your environment updates, and you can choose below whether this should happen with every minor and major update, or only with major updates. Per-tenant extensions are not affected by this setting and will update as chosen when the app package was uploaded to the environment.

If you set the app update cadence to Default, Microsoft will decide which updates to your environment will also update the installed AppSource apps. Currently we will only do this with major updates, but we may decide to include minor updates in the future.

  • Opt in to automatically update apps installed on your environment with each minor update to the environment. This way, you can always enjoy the latest features and bug fixes from the app developers without any manual intervention.
  • Schedule individual app updates to run in the first upcoming update window set for your environment. This way, you can control when and how often your apps are updated, and minimize the impact on your business operations.

Great. Give it a try!!!😁


Hope this will help.

Thanks for reading.
