What happens to data records in a custom BO on a patch?

I recently created a patch on my solution in the Dev tenant.

When I enabled the solution, it seemed all the data in my custom BO were gone. IT was as if I did a clean on the custom BO data.

As I proceeded in my development, I got stuck on another issue. When I disabled the solution, all the old data before patch came back in the custom BO.

So this effect is something new !

What happens if I do deploy the patch over into PRD tenant ?

Will all the data in custom BO be lost ?

Appreciate any knowledge / experience on what happens on pre-existing data on a custom BO when a patch is uploaded and activated in a PRD tenant.

    Hi Tim,

    I can only tell from a normal test tenant. When you create a patch, there is a namespace switch. This means the orginial solution will be copied to a new namespace which is the patch solution.

    If you enable the patch solution you can see only the patch solution, which has no data. If you switch back to the original solution, the namespace is switched again and you can see again your data.

    The data is not lost. But you cannot see it as you only see the patch solution. That is a normal behaviour. You will also observe that i.e. extension fields in the migration template appear to be doubled. You will see the new namespace fields as well as the old namespace fields.

    In production this will not be any problem. When you deploy the patch it will be copied into the originall namespace, so all data will still be there only new features on top of it.
