How to install a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cumulative update
You must have Microsoft Dynamics Dynamics 365 Business Central installed to apply this hotfix.
When you upgrade on-premises deployments to this update, you and your customers must use a new license that covers more scenarios than the one for the original release in October 2018.
Why this new license?
In cumulative update 1 (CU 1), we have enabled new licensing scenarios so that Business Central is optimized for licenses with named users but also support concurrent users. This was not fully supported in the RTM version that was made available on October 1, 2018, and that is why CU 1 requires a new license. You can pull new licenses when you upgrade customers to CU 1.
The new licenses are required for cumulative update 1 and later versions of Business Central and are not backwards compatible with earlier versions of Business Central.
What has changed?
With CU 1, Business Central supports the product line IDs 49, 74, 75, and 76 for named users. Business Central also supports product line ID 50 for concurrent users.
Additionally, the new licenses also include the ID range 70,000,000-74,999,999. For more information, see the Dynamics 365 Business Central Licensing Guide.
