Create 'Project for the Web' Dev Environment

I've been asked to look at building an integration between Dynamics and Project for the Web.

The Project for the Web entities reside in the default environment, and I don't want to be developing in here.

How do I create a dev environment that includes the project entities displayed below?

Hi @donalmc ,

 

You can copy the environment: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/copy-environment

Or, you can create a new environment: demos.microsoft.com

Hi @renatoromao 

 

My bad - I didn't include everything I've tried:

I've tried copying the default environment, but no dice - I get to click the Confirm button but the copy does not proceed - nothing happens.

I am unable to add the Project entities to a custom solution.

 

I have created a demo tenent but want something a little more inhouse that I can direct colleagues at in the same way I can direct them to a Dynamics sandbox for UAT.

 

Thanks for the response though!

Yes, I understood! 😞

This is a unique way that I know. If I find another solution I let you know.

hi @renatoromao - I've gone with creating a demo tenant like you suggested - looks like this is the only way to do this currently.

 

Thanks

Donal

Nice @donalmc !

@donalmc I recently ran into this and it appears MS is only provisioning Project for Web in the default CDS environment. 

 

There's a user voice feature request here that talks to having it available in other environments. I dare say it will come, particularly with the new D365 Project Operations coming in June. 

 

There's also another good article you should check out from Antti Pajunen (Daytodaydynamics) that talks more about this. 

 

Thanks, 

James 

 

 

@jamesdiekman  - upvoted and thanks for that article - very illuminating.
