When we created our environments, it was with the old admin center. We have one environment with CDS. I gave access to my admin account and one other admin account and no other users. This interface has now switched to the dynamics interface. I can't seem to tell who has access now.
Within the Power Platform Admin Center > Environments > My CDS environment > click "..." and go to Settings > Users + permissions > users > Manage users in Dynamics 365 (I don't have Dynamics) >
Under "Enabled Users" I see almost the whole company. Under "Disabled Users" I see 10 random names.
Yet, I've got 2 regular user accounts (one is my user account for non-Admin, one is a test) and even though these users are showing up under Enabled Users, they can't see the CDS environment (which is good!)
I am confused as to who actually has access to the CDS environment, considering when created, it was not public and only 2 accounts were set on it. Why do all those enabled users show? How can I actually tell who DOES have access to that environment? It should still be just those 2 admin accounts I originally added under the old interface, plus one other I'd like to add.;
Thank you for any help you can give me!
If you only have one environment then that would be the default environment. Everyone with a Power Apps license always has access to that environment and that can't be changed.
Hi, just to clarify, no issues with the default environment, we have several other environments. One of those other environments has a CDS database. This is the one that I'm having the issue figuring out who has access to.
If you are an Admin you should be able to query a list of active users and their roles through the Power Platform Admin center. That's the only way i know of.
I am in the new Power Platform Center, and I see enabled users and disabled users as above. However, I think that the enabled users are for Dynamics overall, not that specific environment - as they do not have access to the CDS environment in question - but not sure. With the old admin center, was very easy to see who had rights and having trouble figuring it out with the new Power Platform Center with its Dynamics settings.
I'm going to jump in on this one as I have a similar issue. When creating an environment, I didn't have a security group ready, so skipped that and carried on. In hindsight... from:
So I think this explains why you have so many enabled users. I appear to have the same thing. 2640 users, which are probably all those with E3 PowerApps licenses enabled. If I open one of them, they appear to have read/write permissions.
The next line in that doco says:
Can someone confirm: By creating a security group, adding the required users and assigning it to the environment... "everyone" will get removed?
I can confirm that if you create a security group for an environment only the users who are in that group will be able to use things from that environment.
When a cds is added to an environment users management is done in dynamics 365.
There are system roles and enabled users. You may check each user is assigned to which role by clicking on the user.
System roles will also have the environment maker role but not environment admin.
Dont create a database if you are not using cds or not familiar with dynamics365 its a headache.
