Preventing users from creating new environments

Hi

 

What does the global administrator need to do to prevent users from creating new environments within a business office 365 set up?

 

 

Thank you

Hi @SHEPIANG ,

 

By default users can create environments based on the licenses they have.  See the following documentation on which licenses can create environments.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/create-environment#who-can-create-environments

 

You can also update a setting so that only admins can create environments which is outlined here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/control-environment-creation

 

The other alternative is to create your own Power Apps or Flows using the Power Platform for Admins connector to help monitor and alert who is creating environments. 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/powerplatformforadmins/

But non of the documentation shows how to stop a user creating a development environment.

Hi @SHEPIANG ,

 

Development environments are a special case and can't be restricted through any sort of settings.  Take a look at the Type of Environments section in this article https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/establishing-an-environment-strategy-for-microsoft-power-... where it states "Provisioning developer environments cannot be restricted unless through a support ticket."

 

If you want to restrict Development environments from being created then you need to raise a support case with Microsoft.

I agree with what @HSheild  said.

The developer environment can only be restricted by MS support.

Please submit a ticket from https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com/support
