June 2015 release notes

The Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services team is happy to announce the availability of the June release of Lifecycle Services starting 6/26.



  • Upgraded UX and enhanced navigation experience including introduction of direct navigation between services.
  • Organization administrators can now view a list of all projects belonging to that organization. Administrators can also add themselves to any project in that list.
  • You can now submit regulatory alerts to Microsoft directly from LCS. You can find additional details on this feature here. (This is a Preview Feature.)

 Business process modeler

  • You can now create hierarchies that have more than 5 levels.

 Cloud-hosted environments

  • NetBIOS support has been added. To use these options, click Advanced settings > Customize domain settings when deploying your environment. 
  • Enterprise Portal reliability improvements have been made. 
  • When deleting an environment, deployed resources on Azure are now deleted. Keep the following points in mind: 
    • This new feature applies to all environments, including AX 2012 R3, ‘AX 7’, and CRM environments. 
    • The deletion process has two phases. Warnings and recommendations are made during each phase to ensure you have backed up necessary data. 

Phase 1:  This phase stops and de-allocates (so there are no usage charges) all VM resources. No other resources, such as networks, VIPS, endpoints, storage, SQL Azure databases, are impacted. 

If you happen to make a mistake, you can recover after this phase is complete. To do so, click Start on the environment. 

Phase 2: This phase deletes all deployed resources. To complete this phase, phase 1 must first be completed, and you must enter the name of the environment that you want to delete. 

  • When deploying an environment, you can add the environment to an existing Active Director/virtual network.  Deleting an environment does NOT delete any resource that the Cloud-hosted environment tool did not deploy.

    I just hopped in to check up on SQL long-running queries, missing indexes, etc, and I noticed LCS System diagnostic is not gathering this data from SQL starting June 26th… the day of this update.  

    Any correlation or help?  Is there a new version of the tool to install?

    If you have set up the Task Scheduler it should be updating the data now. If not download the new diagnostics and insatll and run it again. it will work
