ISV Solution Proposals for the ISV Cloud Embed Program
If a prospective ISV solution meets all the eligibility criteria below, the ISV may apply for the program. Entrance into the program is subject to Microsoft’s review and approval.

Eligibility Criteria
To be eligible for inclusion in the ISV Cloud Embed Program, a prospective ISV solution must meet the following eligibility criteria.
  1. The ISV’s software applications and scripts (and third-party software applications, if applicable) included in the proposed Embedded Unified Solution (for the purposes of this page, these two items combined will be referred to as the “ISV Portion” of the prospective ISV solution) must run natively (be designed to run on) on one or more of the following:
    1. Any Embedded edition of a Product
  2. If the prospective Embedded Unified Solution is to include more than one Embedded edition of the Product, the ISV Portion must run natively on each of the intended Embedded edition of the Products.
  3. The ISV Portion must adhere to the following:
    1. Be listed on Microsoft AppSource and meet the guidelines available at
    2. Be validated across technical, architectural and business categories. Microsoft will determine, at Microsoft’s sole discretion, that the ISV Portion adds significant and primary end-to-end functionality to the Embedded edition of the Product using an algorithm that looks at entities, forms, business logic, etc.
  4. The ISV Portion must be integrated with the Embedded edition of the Products such that the prospective ISV solution can only be distributed and licensed by including the Embedded Edition of the Products together with the ISV Portion (i.e., the Embedded edition of the Product cannot be distributed on a standalone basis.)

  6. The ISV must enroll in the Microsoft Business Applications ISV Program by October 15, 2019 to continue using the Embedded edition of a Product.
