Microsoft Power Platform ISV Studio

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

ISV Studio is designed to become the go-to Power Platform destination for Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to monitor and manage their applications. ISV Studio provides a consolidated cross tenant view of all the applications an ISV is distributing to customers.

Important

  • ISV Studio is a preview feature.
  • Preview features aren’t meant for production use and may have restricted functionality. These features are available before an official release so that customers can get early access and provide feedback.

ISV Studio supports applications built on the Microsoft Dataverse that are published to and deployed through AppSource. No telemetry will be provided on side loaded solutions not deployed through AppSource.

The applications currently available on the Dataverse includes Power Apps and Dynamics 365 for Sales, Marketing, Service, and Talent. ISV Studio now provides telemetry features in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.

When end user installs an application from AppSource, a consent dialog will be displayed requesting the user to acknowledge that contact, usage, and transactional information may be shared with the application provider. This information is used by the provider to support billing and other transactional activities and to enable telemetry in ISV Studio for the ISV to learn from and act on.

A customer can request that data not be shared with the provider, in which case Microsoft will remove all data from that particular tenant within ISV Studio.

Pre-requisites for Microsoft Dataverse

The ISV must be associated with a Microsoft registered Partner organization [ISV] that has one or more supported apps published in AppSource. Supported apps include model-driven apps created using Power Apps and Dynamics 365 apps such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Dynamics 365 Customer Service.

Pre-requisites for Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

  • For Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, update the SolutionID in the descriptors with the ProductId of their offer in Partner Center. The ProductId of their offer can be found in the URL in Partner Center.
  • Ask customers to install the latest solution with the above. They need to be on version 10.0.16 or above to see the telemetry feature in ISV Studio. More information: ISV Studio solutions

Admin access to ISV Studio

To be an admin in ISV Studio, your Azure Active Directory account must be configured as an app owner in Partner Center for their publisher account. Once you get the admin access, you'll be able to give more users access to ISV Studio from the studio directly.

Grant read access to users

  1. In ISV Studio, select Settings gear icon on the top right. Select Manage access.

    Settings panel.

  2. Search for a Publisher account in the organization. Select a user within your organization to give access. Select Save.

    Note

    You can only search and add users within your tenant/organization.

  3. After giving access to the user, a confirmation email is sent to the user with access details.

You can follow the same steps to remove read-only access from a user to ISV Studio in the same window.
