HOW TO add new users in Business Central SaaS

Maybe you noticed that navigating to the Users list page in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS the button + New is disabled.

HOW TO add new users in Business Central SaaS?

Well, to add a new user in BC SaaS you should first create a new account in the Tenant connecting to the Microsoft 365 admin center using your browser (I suggest you use Google Chrome) with an account with Admin Role access.

From the Admin Center, navigate to the menu Users -> Active Users and add a new user using one of the buttons “Add a user” or “Add multiple users“.

Remember that in order to allow a user to connect to Business Central you must assign a Dynamics 365 Business Central license to its account.

New accounts are not visible in Business Central?

After you created new users in the Admin Center then you need to connect to Business Central, open the Users list page and use the function from the menu Process -> Get New Users from Office 365

HOW TO get a list of pending Windows Updates of a Server with No Internet access using PowerShell

To get a list of pending Windows Updates of a Server with No Internet access, follow these steps:

  1. Download wsusscn2.cab from another pc/server with Internet Access
  2. Copy the wsusscn2.cab file in the Server that has No Internet access
  3. Open Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator
  4. Run following PowerShell script assigning to the variable $Wsusscn2FilePath the correct path where you saved the wsusscn2.cab file
$Wsusscn2FilePath = "c:\tempwsusscn2.cab"

$UpdateSession = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Session  
$UpdateServiceManager  = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager  
$UpdateService = $UpdateServiceManager.AddScanPackageService("Offline Sync Service", $Wsusscn2FilePath, 1)  
$UpdateSearcher = $UpdateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher()   
  
Write-Output "Searching for updates... `r`n"  
  
$UpdateSearcher.ServerSelection = 3 
 
$UpdateSearcher.IncludePotentiallySupersededUpdates = $true 
  
$UpdateSearcher.ServiceID = $UpdateService.ServiceID.ToString()  
  
$SearchResult = $UpdateSearcher.Search("IsInstalled=0") 
  
$Updates = $SearchResult.Updates  
  
if($Updates.Count -eq 0){  
    Write-Output "There are no applicable updates."  
    return $null  
}  
  
Write-Output "List of applicable items on the machine when using wssuscan.cab: `r`n"  
  
$i = 0  
foreach($Update in $Updates){   
    Write-Output "$($i)> $($Update.Title)"  
    $i++  
}

The script will return the list of pending updates or the message “There are no applicable updates”.

You will need to download manually the updates from another pc/server with Internet access, copy and install them manually as described in my previous post:

The steps have been tested in Windows Server 2016.
