Introduction to ISV Studio for the Power Platform

Note

Effective November 2020:

  • Common Data Service has been renamed to Microsoft Dataverse. Learn more
  • Some terminology in Microsoft Dataverse has been updated. For example, entity is now table and field is now column. Learn more

This article will be updated soon to reflect the latest terminology.

[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 as well as Dynamics 365 for Sales, Marketing, Service, and Talent.

As an 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

  1. 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.

  2. The ISV must have an Azure Active Directory (AAD) account and the account must be configured as an app contributor or owner in Partner Center for the particular ISV.

If you want additional users to get access to ISV Studio, they can be added as app contributors in Partner Center. Instructions can be found at Managing users on cloud partner portal.
