Upgrading to the Latest Version

This section provides details on how to upgrade to the latest version of Continia Expense Management in the on-premises version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (including guidelines on how to migrate from on-premises to the cloud). You can find guidelines for the online version of Business Central here.

To upgrade Expense Management for app versions of Business Central, you must use the specially developed Continia PowerShell script that automatically upgrades the app and all dependencies. For more information, see Upgrading Continia Expense Management for app versions of Business Central.

For FOB versions of Business Central, your upgrade path depends on what versions of Expense Management and Business Central you currently have. Not all versions of Expense Management are compatible with all versions of Business Central (and vice versa), so we generally recommend that you upgrade to the latest versions of both.

Note that when you upgrade your old version of Expense Management to the latest one, it may not be possible to upgrade directly. In the future, you may have to upgrade your version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Business Central as well to ensure compatibility, but this is currently not necessary. To find out exactly what you need to do to upgrade to the latest FOB version of Expense Management, see Supported Upgrade Paths for Continia Expense Management (FOB).

If you use Expense Management in an old version of NAV/Business Central and want to upgrade NAV/Business Central to a later version, you must also upgrade Expense Management and/or carry out related tasks, depending on what version you use. To learn more and find out what to do for your particular old version of NAV/Business Central, see Upgrading NAV/Business Central with Expense Management Installed.

Last but not least, if your organization is looking to move from an on-premises deployment to a cloud environment, you can easily do so by following the steps in the article Migrating Expense Management from Business Central On-Premises to Cloud.
