Community Plan - limited access to entities and solutions?


I wanted to try out Dev type environment that comes with Community Plan license expecting that it would replace the need of setting up a new trial environment every time I want to try out a feature. Unfortunately, it seems that the amount of entities available is quite limited to a core CDS subset and there is no way to extend it to bring more entities from CDM by applying solutions - for example, Sales and Customer Service solutions are not available when you go to  select your Developer type environment and click Manage Solutions. Is this limitation intentional? Thanks

Hi @mrk ,

Yes, Community Plan has many limitations.

Firstly, you can only have one individual environment, which is created for you by Power Apps when you sign up for the Community Plan.

So owning two environment at the same time is not possible.

Power Apps Community Plan gives you access to Power Apps premium functionalities, Common Data Service, and Power Automate for individual use. So functions about exporting solutions from CDM are not supported.


This plan is perpetually available, but only for learning and building your skills on Power Apps. Many Advanced Features need you to buy license to be used.

Here's a doc about this plan in details for your reference:
