Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 – Functionality Discontinuation Notice

The following functionalities are not compatible with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and are consequently being discontinued:

Business Portal

Microsoft has decided to discontinue the development of Business Portal and focus instead on including most of the same functionalities directly into the core code base of Dynamics GP 2015. The following Business Portal modules will not be available in Dynamics GP 2015 but will be available in the core code base:

  • Business Portal
  • Business Portal Employee Users
  • Business Portal Customer Users
  • Time and Expense for Business Portal
  • Time and Attendance
  • Employee Pay
  • Employee Profile
  • Recruitment
  • Skills and Training
  • Requisition Management
  • SOX Accelerator for Business Portal

Please note that the following Business Portal functionalities will not be available in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and are not planned for replacement:  


  • Order Management
  • PDK
  • eService
  • eReturns

Please refer to the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace for alternative solutions. This functionality discontinuation impacts all Dynamics GP 2015 licensing models.

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 runtime

Microsoft Dynamics has been licensing a runtime version of Microsoft SharePoint Server for the deployment of Business Portal. With the discontinuation of Business Portal, Dynamics GP 2015 does not qualify for a runtime version of Microsoft SharePoint Server.

Consequently, Microsoft SharePoint Server runtime will not be available to customers upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015.
