LCS (January 2019 – release 1) release notes

The Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the release notes for LCS (January 2019, release 1).

Delete implementation projects

With this release of LCS, we allow users with the organization admin role to delete an implementation project owned by their organization. The organization administrator can delete a project only if all the environments within that project have been deleted. If there are any actively deployed environments, the administrator should clean up those environments before deleting the project.

To delete an implementation project, the organization admin can go to the LCS dashboard, click the All Projects tab and select the project to delete. The Delete button will display if there are no actively deployed environments in the project. After Delete is selected, a confirmation dialog box will display where the admin can enter a name and confirm the deletion.

Database movement

We are pleased to announce two new self-service Database movement actions that have been added to private preview. These actions focus on Point-in-time restore. If you’re interested in signing up for any of these new flows, please visit

  • Sandbox Point in time restore allows you to restore your Sandbox back to a previous date and time without a service request.
  • Point in time restore PROD to Sandbox allows you to take a prior snapshot of your Production environment and load that to a Sandbox environment without a service request.
