If you are a Microsoft Dynamics 365 “Online” customer, you may receive this error:

“FCB ‘EnableRegionalDisco’ is disabled”

…when attempting to connect to Dynamics 365 when using Paribus 365.
This is due in part to Microsoft powering down some legacy services.

What’s happening?

Microsoft are now phasing out their Regional Discovery services for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) platform, in order to use their replacement Global Discovery service instead.

How does that affect me?

Existing 3rd-party applications, including current releases of Paribus 365 software, require a particular update in order to ensure compatibility with this change by Microsoft.

With existing versions of Paribus 365 for Microsoft Dynamics 365, you may receive the above error when attempting to create a new connection (and potentially for existing connections).

Even if you are not currently experiencing this error – we would highly recommend applying the relevant patch below, if you are connecting to Dynamics 365 online.

What is the solution?

We are updating all our software to be compatible with these recent changes by Microsoft, and have “patch” updates available for affected customers.
