Dynamics 365: Updates Handling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    If I am the system admin and my organization relies on significant customization that may break an upcoming update. My Microsoft Dynamics 365 is currently up to date and I want to delay any updates for now? What can I do in this case?

    BR,

  • Hello Greta,

    Check following article - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn308237.aspx#BKMK_ReschedUpdate

    It should help you to postpone the update.

  • Hi Andrew,

    Well if you have the below multiple choice answers, which one would you choose?

    A. Update the instance now without full testing, and address bugs as they arise.
    B. Skip all updates until the customizations have been updated to the latest version.
    C. Skip up to one update, and have the customizations updated for the following version.
    D. Skip up to two updates, and have the customizations updated for the following version.

    I don't see rescheduling inside it.

    BR,

  • I wouldn't go with any of these options. Instead, I'd ensure I have a sandbox instance, copy the production instance into the sandbox, update the sandbox and test the customisations. Then, when I'm happy all have been tested OK, schedule the upgrade for the production instance
