Platform update 8: Table browser is now in read-only mode

From Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition platform update 8 (June 2017) onwards, the table browser is now in read-only mode on runtime environments (Sandbox Tier-2 and Production).

This means that from that update onwards, system administrators have no option to alter data in their acceptance or production environment.

Statement from Microsoft:
“The table browser form is now in read-only mode on runtime environments (Sandbox Tier-2 and Production).

The table browser form is designed for developers to quickly create and edit test data on development environments. It was also available to system administrators on runtime environments. As of Platform update 8, system administrators can only access the table browser in read-only mode on runtime environments, this is in reaction to live incidents caused by human error when system administrators inadvertently edited or removed live system data.”
