Can't create an environment in the PowerApps Admin center

Issue

  • The tenant/environment admin can't create an environment in the Microsoft PowerApps Admin center.
  • A licence that gives users the right to perform the environment creation step hasn't been assigned directly to the user who is performing that step.

Solution

Make sure that the tenant admin has assigned a valid PowerApps P2 license directly to the user who will perform the environment creation step. Here are the Microsoft Dynamics service plans that provide that right.

Overall product stock keeping unit (SKU) PowerApps P2 service plan
Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations PowerApps for Dynamics 365
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Plan Enterprise Edition PowerApps for Dynamics 365

Note that various Microsoft Office SKUs also provide the right, together with standalone PowerApps Plan 2 SKUs. The important point is that one of these SKUs must be present.

  1. Go to https://preview.admin.powerapps.com/environments.
  2. Create the environments by following the instructions in Provision Talent.
