I was just going through this Preview feature of PowerApps portals and I could not stop myself from sharing it. If you have ever worked on Powerapps/ Dynamics 365 portals authentication, you know the pain of remembering every site setting and then working out your way to fix them. It’s kind of nightmare to configure all this.
Wished there would have an intuitive UI which would just ask for few information and then would automatically create those site settings in the portal? You wished for it and Microsoft just did that. Though in preview stage but I am quite sure this would make to General availability and even improve from the preview version.
The first thing is how to access the preview feature in the portals. If you go to make.powerapps.com and then navigate to your portal app, you won’t be able to see the preview features. To access the preview features, make sure you browse the URL – https://make.preview.powerapps.com
I browse the preview URL, select the Portal App, click on the three dots and then click on Settings from the dropdown menu.
In the settings, I could see new option called Authentication Settings.
Trust me when I clicked on Authentication settings, it was a delight to see the page coming up.
As you can see we have all the providers supported by the portals being listed here. Local Sign and Azure active directory is already enabled.
So let’s start exploring. Well there are quite a few features of this new UI and I will be writing multiple blogs over the next few days to go through all of them. Please visit the below links for more.
Hope this helps!
