Is there any limitations in portal security and authentication?

Hi all,

 

I am exploring power apps portal and I wanted to know if there is any limitations in portal security and authentication.

 

Thank you...

Hi, that's a tricky one.. do you have any specific requirement in mind that you want us to validate? 

 

Just a few things I can think of:

  • Email address should be unique in your Contact records
  • Local Login are deprecated and you should avoid them
  • Field Security Profile are ignored from a Portals perspective - you can apply JS to simulate the behaviour

Hi @Amruthavarshini , 

      

          Again, as @OliverRodrigues  mentioned this is really tricky to answer. Adding few more points 

 

1. Two-factor authentication is available but it is not supported by portals yet. You can do some out-of-the-box features. 

2.  Multi-Factor authentication is only available if you configure Active Directory Federated Services (AD FS) with Azure MFA. 

3. Passwordless is not yet available. But I believe in the future this will be available. 

4. If you have plans to build a companion app to support powerapps portal, probably authentication and cross-site forgery should be taken into consideration. Ref: about companion app: https://www.engineeredcode.com/blog/dynamics-365-portal-custom-server-side-code-with-a-companion-app 

 

Hope it helps.
