CDS permissions for Everyone

I have created a new environment and have a PowerApp and CDS entities in this environment.   Whilst developing and testing this was only exposed to a limited number of users but we now want to share this organisation-wide.    We can do this on the app by sharing with Everyone, but how to we give a CDS role to Everyone?   I can't see any options to do this when I look at the management tool.


Can anyone help please?  Thanks

Re: CDS permissions for Everyone

Hi @StuartRidout,


By saying "CDS role", do you mean to modify the Common Data Service for Apps Entity?

If yes, then it would require PowerApps Plan 2.


Users who own PowerApps Plan 1 would be available to use the data in CDS, 

Users who own PowerApps Plan 2 would be available to model the Data in CDS.



PowerApps standalone Plan 1 and Plan 2

Full-featured standalone PowerApps plans provide users the ability to create and run apps across data sources that extend beyond Office 365 and Dynamics 365, such as Salesforce and on-premises data sources, as well as Microsoft’s Common Data Service. These subscriptions also include features not available in Office 365 and Dynamics 365 plans.

  • Microsoft PowerApps Plan 2 subscriptions are for users and administrators who need full create and run capabilities. These users have access to important management capabilities like viewing usage and setting policy. PowerApps Plan 2 users can model data in the Common Data Service.
  • Microsoft PowerApps Plan 1 subscriptions are for users who primarily run apps. These users can still create apps and flows, but they can't model data in the Common Data Service or perform management tasks.
