Understanding Continia Core

Continia Core is an internal app that’s used in and required by all Continia solutions. From a user perspective, the app is practically unnoticeable, but it's absolutely essential from a technical point of view, given that it’s an integral building block in all Continia solutions.

The app is used for activation and for registering consumption but also includes a range of other very important features used by multiple Continia solutions, such as frameworks for handling telemetry and web communication.

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central online, Continia Core is installed automatically, while in Business Central on-premises it can be installed using our custom installation scripts. This is why you can see the app under Installed Extensions in Business Central (choose the Search icon, enter Extension Management, and then choose the related link).
