Does PowerApps allow creating entities/fields for Dynamics 365 instance?

Hi,

 

As Dynamics 365 uses the CDS platform, I am trying to find if there is a way to create new entities/fields in the Dynamics 365 instance from within the PowerApps studio just like how we create new entities/fields for CDS database.

 

Thank you!

Hi @Akshatha,

 

This is not supported.

 

Within PowerApps, it is available to work with the data stored within Entities, but it is not available to modify the entity schema, such as adding more fields, or create a new entity.

 

If you would like this to be added in the future, then please consider submit it as an idea:
