How to kill session in Business Central

Recently faced a problem of table locking which goes in not responding stage and finally user close the tab ,but when user opens the session again it actually messed up the critical data (It seems unimaginable force was roaming that time when this happens). Eventually after trying couple of days for data correction I need to contact Microsoft to restore the database.

When this happening my customer asked me if something like this happen then can we kill or cancel the session of user and then I came across this feature of Business Central admin center.

How to access admin center

This can be by adding tenant id with your business central URL as below

https://businesscentral.dynamics.com/%5BTenant Id]

This will open admin center as below.

In this portal you can see all the environment including sandbox.I can see this is your control center for managing business central on cloud.

Now next step is click on required environment which will navigate to other screen.

To see all the session click on session

This will show you call the required session for the selected environment.

Now to cancel the session select the required session and click on Cancel session .This will kill the required session.

Another advantage of this screen is that it show other information like which operation is going on ,which object is involved in current operation and duration of current operation.

Hope this will help you to cancel the unwanted session

Stay tuned for more..
