Managing Environments in Power Platform - Risk Management Part-2

Managing Environments in Power Platform - Risk Management Part-2

This informative blog post delves into environment management for Power Platform and Dynamics 365 - Dataverse. It provides a helpful insight into the considerations surrounding environment scope, types, security access, backup, and restore. To begin with, an environment in Power Platform is used to store, share and manage business data, Dynamics 365 and Portal apps, Power Automate flows, chatbots and connections. Notably, each Power Platform environment is created in the Azure AD tenant and is bound to a geo-location, with only users within the AD tenant being able to access the environment.

Furthermore, the post outlines the various environment types and considerations for each of them. Sandboxing is explored in particular detail, highlighting how admin users can create multiple sandbox environments in Power Platform, which can then be converted to production environments. Security access for environments with Dataverse databases is also elaborated on, pointing out the main roles of Environment Admin and Environment Maker for such environments.

The post also tackles the topic of backup and restore, providing insights into how backups are continuously made using Azure SQL Database, and how they can be restored only to a non-production environment. Lastly, the author concludes by highlighting the importance of correctly managing and understanding Power Platform environments with Dynamics 365 apps.

For those looking to gain a deeper understanding of environment management in Power Platform, this post is an excellent reference point.
