  • 1.  PowerApps with D365 Finance and Operations

    Posted Jul 21, 2020 04:58 PM

    I created a simple PowerApp to return a list of our F&O vendors with search capability. I want to share the app with a controlled list of coworkers who simply need an updated vendor list at times.  It appears that in order to use the PowerApp, a coworker has to be a user in F&O. Is there any way around this? Can I some how embed a log in to the PowerApp so that it bypasses the need to be an F&O user?

    Unfortunately if you build the PowerApp in top of a D365 F&O data entity or using the D365 F&O connector then consumers need to have access to D365 F&O source data in order consume the app. As a work around, and for your purposes this might work, then I will built a flow to export the vendor list into a SharePoint list, have that flow update the list on a schedule and then build the app in top of the SharePoint list. Now you can control all the security using SharePoint and the office 365 license should cover all users.

    Take a look into using Data Integrator and import the Vendors from Finance into the Common Data Service.

    The docs here should get you started.
