Ability to create a starter Portal vs Custom Portal

Hi  Couple of questions I am trying to create a fresh "Starter Portal"


Not a Custom Portal... I created a CDS only environment and was able to make a starter portal but within a d365 environment I can only create a custom Portal


1. How can you create a "starter portal" all I can see is a custom portal when i select from new portal from Blank.


2. is it possible to migrate a starter portal into a custom portal if they are in different environments using xrm portal records mover tool? 



Hi @Justin365,

Starter Portal is an equivalent for Custom Portal for CDS only instances. See this article from Colin Vermander. So in D365, you can only create Custom Portal as a pure "starter" portal.

Being honest never migrated portal from CDS only to D365 environments but I don't think there that will be any issues as they are basically the same (even according to docs - see here to find more about available templates and their comparison). 

If you find this post helpful consider marking it as a solution to help others find it.
