Enable CDS For AI Builder

I've been trying to enable CDS in our tenant but no one in my IT department knows where or how they are supposed to enable it. I've been wanting to use the AI builder, but haven't been able to activate the CDS required to utilize the AI builder.

Is there any clear documentation available that I can pass along to my IT team to have them turn all the dials and flip switches to get CDS enabled to allow use of AI builder?

Hi @srduval,


Have you opened the AI builder feature?

To control the feature availability:

  1. Sign in to the Power Platform admin center.
  2. In the admin center, go to Environments > [select an environment] > Settings > Features.
  3. On the Features settings page, under AI Builder, enable or disable AI Builder preview models.

For more information about enabling AI builder


If you do not prepare the Data, you should prepare your data firstly, if you have no CDS entity, you should create a new one:

Hi @srduval,


You will need to go the Power Apps or Power Automate sites and create an environment with a database as documented here:


Once you have an environment with a database, you will have enabled CDS in that environment.


Let us know if this helps! 

@v-litu-msftthanks for the information, AI builder is enabled, as I can see it in the left menu of power automate, when I click on it it says no database found. So I click create one. This is the error message I get:

This AAD application '00000007-0000-0000-c000-000000000000' has been disabled in tenant 'a8f00bfd-'. Please contact your tenant administrator for more details.

Hi @srduval,


Check with your IT admin that Common Data Service is enabled as described here:

Thanks I forwarded that to my IT group. I'll post back when I hear from them.
