This article outlines the major version lifecycle policies for Mobile WMS for Business Central (Cloud and On-Prem)

Every 6-month Microsoft will release a "major" version of Business Central, also known as "Wave 1" (April) and "Wave 2" (October).

  • This lifecycle policy is based on major versions.  See more: Version numbers in Business Central
  • In practice, this only affects On-prem installations, as cloud tenants receive a new major version every 6 months

What it means to be in an active lifecycle ✔️

  • Both new features and bug fixes are released
  • Documentation is maintained

What it means to be out of lifecycle ❌

  • Features or bug fixes are no longer released
  • Documentation may no longer fully match the experience of this release

Policy rules

MS rule

  • 6 months of full support and 12 months with only bug fixes, for a total 18 months of support

Mobile WMS rule

  • Extend MS end date by 6 months for a total of 2 years of support


  • BC Cloud using AppSource

    • A supported version of Mobile WMS is always available (our two years end date is longer than needed, as cloud production servers get a new major version every 6 months)

  • BC On-prem

    • You should upgrade Business Central at least every two years or you may not be able to install the new Mobile WMS releases
