Development of PowerApps

Hi,

I have learned from documents that we can develop the PowerApps in sandbox environment for 30 days. After 30 days the trial version will be expired, and after 7days of expiration the developed app will be deleted if it is not moved to production. Could you please assist me or provide me any information on how can we have limit free development environment for PowerApps.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Cheers, Jags

Hi @Jagadis , 

 

If you have a license, your environment should be good for as long as you want. However, if you don't have a license and simply want to try out Power Apps in a developer environment for as long as you want, you need a Community Plan which is a personal developer environment. Please remember you cannot share apps in this environment. It is only for personal use. 

 

For more info about license, go to: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/

For steps to create a personal / community plan environment, go to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/dev-community-plan

 

Let me know if this helps.

Hi Hardit

 

Thanks for your reply. It was very helpful but did not yet my resolve my situation.

As per your instruction I have activated community plan which installed a new environment in my power app studio. I have created a new portal and as soon as I select the portal for edit it shows below warning.

Does this need an addition license ? which license then?

 

Cheers, 

Jags

 

 

That shouldn't be the case. Not sure if the environment was created as a community plan. Or it could be that Portals arent available. The initial post asked about Power Apps and those I know work for sure. Let me check it in my community plan environment and I will get back to you.

Hi @Jagadis 

 

Apologies for the delayed response. So I did try creating a portal in my community plan environment and it worked fine. The fact that you are seeing the trial environment message makes me believe that it isn't a community plan. 

 

One quick way to check is if you go to the Home tab on make.powerapps.com, do you see the warning on the top as in the image below? (This is an individual environment and not meant for production use)

If not, can you try to create a new environment and make sure you are not using the Default environment as shown in the image below?

Let me know if this helps.

Hi @PowerAddict 

 

Thanks again for your reply.

I can confirm that on home page I could see the warning "This is an individual environment and not meant for production use." This means as you said is a trial environment. 

BUT, I could tell you one thing this environment was created automatically after signing up for Power community plan as per the documentation.

 

Could you please assist me how to resolve by keeping this environment used with community plan? OR what is the procedure to buy community plan from scratch?

 

Another thing, if you see below screen it shows list of plans applied to my power apps account.

@Jagadis 

 

Apologies for the delayed in my response. Also, I was probably not clear with my previous message but if you are seeing that warning about "non production environment" rather than a message about "trial environment", then that means it is a community plan environment (and not a trial environment). In the list of environments on the top right corner, do you see more than one environment? If so, does the one you have selected have a (Default) at the end of it?

Hi @PowerAddict 

 

You're right!

 

I can see the message that you mentioned on my home page as shown below:

Jagadis_1-1598966540399.png

 

And I also have a default environment hence this means community plan is already activated.

BUT, I could see below warning for new Power apps portals. Is this expected, means, we have to complete the development of portal in 30 days? OR, ?

 

Jagadis_0-1598966515384.png

My apologies for the back and forth. I was finally able to replicate what you are seeing. I simply followed the instructions here to convert my portal from trial to production. 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/portals/admin/portal-lifecycle#convert-a-portal-fro...

 

Let me know if this doesn't work for you for whatever reason and we can walk through the steps.

Hi Hardit

Thank you once again for reply.

I followed the steps and it did resolve the notification now. 

BUT, could you please tell me what is difference between "Converting the poral to production" and "migrating the portal to production environment"? I had tried a lot search the answers / contents but failed to get them anywhere.

 

Thanks in advance. 🙂

 

Cheers Jags
