  • Every Dynamics 365 customer can deploy as many production and non-production web portals as needed. See portal licensing information below.
  • Your portal will be 100% housed and maintained within the Common Data Service and integrated with your Dynamics 365 environment.

Power Apps Portals

How Are Power Apps Portals Licensed?

Licensing Power Apps Portals

Power Apps Portals are licensed based on sufficient capacity for external usage. Portals can be shared with external users anonymously, or through a login provider such as LinkedIn and Microsoft accounts. For employee access, corporate Azure Active Directory accounts can be connected.

For authenticated users: Portals are metered per login. This requires a portal licence to have sufficient login capacity consistent to usage.

For external anonymous portal users: the licensing model is based on pages views.

Personalising Your Portal

Share the information that matters most to your users within a single interface. Data can be published from any entity and field on read-only basis, or enable portal users to write changes directly back to Dynamics 365 and the Common Data Service. 

In addition to personal contact data, web portals can be used to publish details of active contracts, agreements, appointments, applications and projects.

Configure interactive features including community forums, and apply dynamic content for advanced personalisation that will adapt portal pages, controls and layouts for different user types. 

For bespoke requirements, the custom portal framework is completely extensible and flexible to fit virtually any scenario.
