I signed up for a Community Plan. I'm following the instructions to create a UI Flow, but I'm getting an error message saying "You don't have any CDS subscription yet. To create UI flows (preview) automations, please first choose a plan that's right for you." How do I fix this?
I only have the single (default) environment. I tried creating a new environment, but I got an error message saying "The user does not have a license that allows environment creation."
How can I get a CDS subscription?
I tried contacting support but I got an error message saying "Premium Plan Required".
When you've got your Flow/Power Automate homepage open, if you click on the gearbox icon on the ribbon on your top-right, can you see Admin Center as a drop down option? I think only admins can create environments.
I've looked at the articles you posted and they seem a bit ambiguous as well. One says the PowerApp Community plan provides you with a dev environment for flow, powerapps, etc while the other article says CDS isn't available with the flow free license, weird indeed.
I have the Admin Center in settings.
I would appreciate suggestions from anyone.
I think the "You don't have any CDS subscription yet" message is generic. I created the CDS database for a flow environment and waited for a day, but still it didn't help. Going between the lines of UI flows TechNet article, one of the prerequisite is having a premium flow license. Having flow license that comes with O365/dynamics with access to standard connectors was the issue for me, although error message kept pointing CDS. The moment I assigned flow premium license on the account, "Create a UI Flow" button disappeared.
My 2 cents
I started reading the documentation from the beginning. I found a line that says "If you haven't used the Common Data Service before, open the Entities tab of powerapps.com, and then click or tap Create my database." After doing this, the error message went away.
One of my troubleshooting steps was converting the Community Plan to a trial. I now have to figure out how to switch it back.
I started a new thread.
