Why Can't I create a CDM from my existing Dynamics CRM data



I am trying to create a Common Data Model for my default environment but powerapps says there is not enough permission. Is there a way to change permission and create a CDM from my existing CRM data?

Hi @Kvarsha,


Could you please share the error details ?

In addition, are you trying to create the Common Data Service database, or the entity?

For database, please see:

Create a Common Data Service database

By the way, please make sure the account you used has been configured with the proper permission to access the CDS database under the Admin center (Environments):

Working with environments and Microsoft PowerApps

Please reply back if you need any further assistance.
