Use the Common Data Services Default Solution

All Power Apps environments include the following solutions.

  • Common Data Services Default Solution - This is a base solution that is available for makers to use by default for their customizations in an environment.
  • Default Solution - This is a special solution that contains all customizations from all solutions in an environment.

Notice that if you have installed or imported other applications or solutions, additional solutions may be available in the solutions list.

By default, when you build or customize a model-driven app, you work with the solution called Common Data Services Default Solution. You can open the Common Data Services Default Solution to view and edit the components that are contained in it. To do this, follow these steps.

  1. On the left navigation pane select Solutions.

  2. In the list of solutions, select Common Data Services Default Solution.


If you plan to distribute the applications your make, consider changing the publisher customization prefix. More information: Solution publisher prefix.

Privacy notices

By enabling a solution, you consent to share your data with an external system. Data that is imported from external systems into Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) is subject to Microsoft Privacy and Cookies.

You can import and export solutions to and from Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online). When you do so, the solutions, which may contain personal information, are transferred over a secure connection between your computer and Microsoft servers. In turn, third-party code imported to Dynamics 365 (online) could eventually transmit Customer Data to an external system (i.e. InsideView) or configure/expand entities that get synchronized (i.e. exported) to other external systems that are controlled by a party other than Microsoft.

If a solution to be imported is meant to transmit Customer Data outside of the security boundaries of Dynamics 365 (online), Administrators are invited to verify the types of Customer Data that will be called by the service/software/application prior to uploading third-party code to their Dynamics 365 (online) instance.
Extraction of Customer Data by third party services/software/applications or solutions is controlled by the customer, not Microsoft. The final destiny and privacy policies applicable to the data points extracted by these external solutions are controlled by the Administrator; adequate review of the policies applicable by the third parties operating these services/software/apps is recommended.
