User in Dataverse vs. Person Column in SharePoint

Hi,

 

Can someone share their knowledge about how to connect a user table in Dataverse for user search in PowerApps?

 

So when I am using SharePoint, I can either user the Person column or Microsoft User to search for Employees and their information. How can I do that if I am using Dataverse?

 

Any information is appreciated? 🙂

 

Regards,

May

Hi @mayarnaldo15 ,

Easiest way to get started and have some sample code here to use for searching, viewing records in gallery, view / update of record is to create an App in the Maker Portal from the Dataverse as the datasource.  You will see sample code there for your gallery tied into a search text input field, etc. and it generates the whole thing for you 😀

 

Note - Users are not by default in Dataverse Users table unless they. have a license so you will only get a subset.  If you wanted to bring all users down to Dataverse you can tie to a security group (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/control-user-access

 

Hope this helps. Please accept if answers your question or Like if helps in any way.
Thanks,
Drew
