The Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the release notes for LCS (November 2017, release 1).
Support for data templates
You can use the Configuration and Data Manager in Lifecycle Services to apply data packages that are in your project's Asset library to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations environments (or Dynamics 365 for Retail). With this release of LCS, you can use the Configuration and Data manager to apply data templates to your environments directly from LCS.
Periodically, Microsoft releases data templates to the Shared Asset library. These data templates help you create reliable configurations, or data packages, for faster and more repeatable implementations. For more information on configurations, see Configuration data projects.
