Yes. Since the BC SaaS customers can onlycloud-optimizedmized code by design, this only applies to on-premise customers.
Your customers will still be impacted by Universal Code Initiative. Even if you don’t have any plans to move your solution to SaaS, you should still develop cloud-compatible code to prevent your customers from paying extra fees.
When doing enhancement renewals, these modules will become available in .flf for these customers, and based on what’s inside .flf, the platform will be checking.
This will be included in all supported versions of Business Central.
All Business Central CUs will have technical enforcements which will require UCI licensing for your customers. This means that your new customers should only have Universal Code regardless of which version you install. The only exception is when migrating from Business Central earlier versions.
No. They will be impacted only if moving from Dynamics NAV to Business Central.
Your customers will be impacted starting April 2022. It does not matter whether your objects are in custom, standard, or ISV range – if there’s any code that’s not universal, your customers will be impacted.
Customers who are on NAV will not be impacted by a CU update. However, once they update to Business Central, they will be required to either have Universal Code only or a license for non-universal code.
