Lifecycle Services – September 2019 (Release 2) release notes

The Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the release notes for LCS (September 2019, release 2)

Database backup assets limited to Project Owners and Environment Managers

Based on feedback from our customers (that’s you) we have restricted access to the Database backups section of the project asset library. This section can now only be accessed by Project Owners and Environment Managers. This will allow organizations tighter controls on who can upload and download full database backups from their LCS project.

To change a user’s role in your project, simply visit the Project Users page. After changing the role assigned to the user, that user must sign out. Updates to a role will take effect when that user signs in again.


Database refresh requiring Platform update 20 in December 2019

As of this writing, the current minimum platform version supported by Database refresh is Platform update 12. We will be increasing this to Platform update 20 in our December 2019 release of Lifecycle Services. This means that both the source and the target environment in a refresh operation will need to be using Platform update 20 or later.

New platforms are released each month, with the current general availability version being Platform update 29. Customers are encouraged to stay on a recent platform update to continue to use valuable features such as Database refresh. Platform update 20 is available in the Shared Asset Library under the Software Deployable Packages section
