Update the Power Apps portals solution

A Power Apps portal consists of solutions from different packages in an environment. You can use the Power Platform admin center to:

  • View the details of installed packages (such as the version details).
  • Update installed packages for the selected portal, if a package with a higher version is available.

Important

  • Updating packages might take some time. While the upgrade is in progress, you might see some instability in your portal; hence, we recommend that you update packages during off-peak hours.
  • Solutions in a package are upgraded for an environment. Hence, the selected package will be upgraded for all portals in the environment using the package.

Note

You can also update solution packages for Power Pages sites. More information: What is Power Pages.

Required permissions

You might see the following error message if you don't have the required permissions to view and update a portal package: "You don't have the permissions to access this portal's environment." More information: Admin roles required for portal administrative tasks
