  1. I opened Life Cycle services and created a new project.
    But from Product Name and Product Version there is no option for ” Dynamics 365 For Operations “.
    It is only showing “Microsoft Dynamics NAV” .
    Please guide me.

    1. Hi Dhruvin,

      Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations is available only to existing Microsoft Dynamics 365 channel partners and customers who are currently enrolled in the Business Ready Enhancement Plan (BREP) service plan.

      It seems you are not a partner or a customer. So, you are not able to see the option for D365 Operations.
