Hi @rbamp - in short, yes. If you sign up for Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement, you will be able to go to web.powerapps.com and access your environment, you will then see all entities which are available in your environment. (Base CDS environments include a subset, but if you deploy Customer Enagement, those entities will be included.) And you can then build a Model driven app, and have users consume it using a PowerApps Plan 2.
The only thing to keep in mind is some entities are restricted, and do require a Dynamics 365 license, you should check out (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/common-data-service/data-platform-restricted-entiti...) when you're buildling your app.
I've got a D365 Enterprise Plan and would like to be able to access entities in a CDS2 environment that are standard in D365FS (Field Service) - how can I go about accessing these entities e.g. msdyn_workorder / msdyn_customerasset
@lewis_hm - If you log in to web.powerapps.com you should be able to see your environment in the drop down in the top right hand corner (assuming your environment is not on premise, and that its been upgraded to Version 9). Then you can use the PowerApps functionality from web.powerapps.com directly.
If you then open Data > Entities - you'll be able to see the Work order and Customer asset entities. If you create the new environment from PowerApps, it will only have the core entities, which will not include these.
If you don't see your environment, please let us know and we can have someone look into it for you.
Hi @rbamp - you can see a documented list of entities across the product here : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/developer/about-entity-reference, only the entities which are documented on the restricted entity list require a specific Dynamics 365 license.
If you would like to test building apps using the full set of entities, I'd recommended going to trials.dynamics.com and creating a new environment with Sales, Service, etc all installed - you can then log into web.powerapps.com and you will see all entities which are available across the platform.
Hope this helps.
Hi @CWesener - we have two D365 V9 sandbox environments that aren't currently appearing in the environment drop-down in PowerApps. Is this because they are Sandbox environments and not Production? If not, then yes could we please arrange for someone to look into it? Thanks, Lewis.
