Frequently Asked Questions

  • Virtual networks should not affect access to Power Apps. Power apps are accessed on internet capable devices, with the option of offline access via the mobile application, so as long as you can pull up a browser and sign into powerapps.com, you should be able to access your apps.

    How to monitor performance of applications built on top of Power Apps? How to review app telemetry?

    The Power Platform admin center provides a unified portal to monitor performance of apps and to review app telemetry. To monitor app performance, you can look at "analytics" and Common Data Service analytics will provide statistics via different dashboards that cover active users, troubleshot workflows, app telemetry, and much more. Learn more about Common Data Service Analytics, Power Platform Admin Center, and Monitor to improve app telemetry.

  • First obtain a license for users, the type of license a user has determines the assets and data a user can access. After users have licenses, environments exist as containers for all resources utilized by Power Apps. Within the environments you can target different and/or different purposes utilizing Network Access Control policies. Utilizing environment controls you apply policies to govern at three levels: environment roles, resource permissions for Power Apps, and Common Data Service security roles.

  • We launched the APIM and Power Apps integration so developers can leverage Azure Functions and Azure API Management to create custom APIs to unlock access to any Microsoft cloud hosted data sources. Developers can directly publish Azure APIM backed connectors to Power Apps for easy integration, reducing time to create apps. The GitHub integration enables developers to create their own Software Development Lifecycles (SDLC) workflows, or use pre-configured templates, with GitHub Actions to develop, test, and deliver Power Platform solutions.
