Power Apps | Unable to query Canvas App using CDS WebAPI

September 27, 2020 Leave a comment

In my Power Apps Environment I have the following ‘Hello World’ Canvas App.

When I query ‘Canvas App’ entity using Web API from same Environment, there were no Canvas App records returned.

Reason:

  • If you create a Canvas App from ‘Apps’ tab outside of solutions or imported any App to the Environment, Canvas App will not be available in CDS until its added to a solution.
  • Open any of the unmanaged solution from the Environment, use ‘Add Existing’ and select the ‘Hello World’ Canvas App from ‘Outside solutions’ tab.
  • Once added a ‘Name’ gets populated and looks as below.
  • Now query the ‘Canvas App’ entity using Web API and now we should get the ‘Hello World’ Canvas App record.

Power Platform Admin Analytics

September 27, 2020 Leave a comment

In previous Dynamics versions, with the help of Organization Insights, available as a preferred solution from AppSource, we can get the organization level insights such as No of Active Users, API Calls, etc.

Now  these analytics can be viewed right from the Power Platform Admin Center with no need of additional solutions.

Currently there are 3 types of Analytics are available.

Who can view the Analytics reports:

Admins with the following roles and a license can view the analytics:

  • Environment Admin – can view reports for the environments that the admin has access to.
  • Power Platform admin – can view reports for all environments.
  • Dynamics 365 admin – can view reports for all environments.
  • Microsoft 365 Global admin – can view reports for all environments.

Refer this article for more details
