Control who can create and manage environments in the Power Platform admin center

With the new provisioning model, those with the correct licenses can create an environment as long as 1GB of capacity is available. To restrict environment creation and management to admins, do the following:

  1. Sign in to the Power Platform admin center at https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com.

  2. Select the Gear icon (Gear icon) in the upper-right corner of the Power Platform site.

  3. Select Power Platform settings.

  4. Select Only specific admins.

    Specify Global admins

The following admins will be able to create new environments in the Power Platform admin center:

  • Global admins
  • Dynamics 365 admins
  • Power Platform admins

Note

Environments created prior to restriction can still be managed after restriction by those who created the environment. Restriction will prevent any new environments being created and managed.
