Administer AI Builder

Microsoft Power Platform administrators can use the Power Apps admin center and the Power Platform admin center to manage environments and settings for Power Apps and AI Builder. More information: Power Platform administrator guide

Supported regions

Your AI model is deployed in the region that hosts the environment. For example, if your environment is created in the Europe region, your model is deployed in datacenters in Europe. More information: Environments overview

The availability (release status) of AI Builder is dependent on your region. For a breakdown of AI Builder feature availability by region, see Feature availability by region.

Enable or disable AI Builder preview features

Some AI Builder features are released for general availability. Others remain in preview release status.

Preview features appear on the build page with the Preview label. In the Power Platform admin center, administrators control whether users have access to preview features.

By default, the AI Builder preview models feature is enabled for any eligible environment. Eligible environments must have Common Data Service and be in a supported region. If the environment isn't eligible, the AI Builder preview models feature doesn't appear in the Power Platform admin center.

To control AI Builder preview feature availability:

  1. Sign in to the Power Platform admin center.
  2. In the admin center, go to Environments > [select an environment] > Settings > Features.
  3. On the Features settings page, under AI Builder, enable or disable AI Builder preview models.
  • If you disable AI Builder preview models:

    • We don't delete existing models that users of this environment have created.
    • AI Builder components are disabled.
    • Existing experiences that use existing AI Builder components will fail or return errors.
    • Admins and owners can delete preview models.
  • If you enable AI Builder preview models again:

    • AI Builder components are available again.
    • Components function as they did before the feature was disabled (assuming nothing else has changed).

For more information about enabling or disabling features in the Power Platform admin center, see Manage feature settings.

Backup and restore

Common Data Service has backup and restore capabilities to help protect your apps' data, providing continuous availability of service. System administrators and delegated admin users can use the standard capabilities described here: Back up and restore environments.

  • Backup and restore is fully supported for prediction, object detection, and prebuilt models.


    For object detection models, the restore process might take some time to be completed. The AI Builder models list shows an "importing" status message while the restore operation is in progress.

  • Backup and restore isn't currently supported for preview models and form-processing models. If you restore an environment, you'll have to retrain and republish these models to make them available again.

Move and copy environments

  • For prediction and prebuilt models, moving and copying environments is fully supported.

  • For other models, after you move or copy an environment, you have to retrain and republish existing models to make them available again.
