#2 Publisher in Power Platform

Introduction:

 

As per Out of Behavior, Power platform will provide default prefix for custom entities as new_ or cr608_. To create custom prefix we need to create a publisher so that we can use our custom prefix while creating custom entities or custom fields in custom tables or OOB tables.

 

Implementation Steps:

 

1. Navigate to https://make.powerapps.com

 

2. Click on Solutions

 

3. Then Click on New Solution then select New Publisher Button

In this Demo am selected my Prefix as demo

When do we create new publisher? Does it makes sense to have 1 publisher per department, if a department usually shares app and data? If I have a set of common solutions and data that will be shared across the company does it make sense to have 1 solution for this shared data?
When do I decide when to create a new publisher?

Hi @mjbcruz,

I would suggest to always use the same publisher within you organisation especially if you’re working with managed solutions in your non-dev instances. 
If you’re sharing common components, still with the same publisher, have a core or common environment where these changes occur and then a managed solution containing the common components is installed on all the other instances including other dev instances that might be dependent on those common components. I suggest to go through this documentation and related pages to have a proper environment and ALM strategy: https://docs.microsoft.com/power-platform/alm/ 

@mjbcruz  to answer your question we can create multiple Publishers in an organization.

 

But as per @EricRegnier  its good to have only one publisher in an organization.
