#msdyn365bc - Delete extension data.

Hi Readers,

In this article we will test out a new feature released with 2020 Release Wave 2.

With this feature, administrators can delete extension data in production or sandboxes, either because an application is not in use or, more commonly, because there is a desire to reinstall it from scratch without data—for example, after testing or trial.


This is important feature for SaaS customers as size of database is important and removing data which is not required is important to keep tenant clean and also keep database size reduced.
