Make user to built portal

Hello,

A friend of mine want to make a power apps portal for me, so now I want to make him a user so he has the right to do so in my environment.

 

Can anyone point me to the direction I need to go to add him?

 

At admin Microsoft? How do I make sure he has the rights to work on the portal, but not anything else?

Do I need to get another subscription for him?

 

Thanks in advance for your advise!

Hi @Celia 

 

Please follow the instructions from @Manar  and create an account in Office 365 as a first step. To work in the Power Apps portal, you don't need Dynamics 365 license unless you are creating any special portal types. For blank and dataverse portals, the Power Apps per-app license is sufficient. 

 

Just purchase a single power app license and assign it to the newly created user.  

 

Then go to the power platform admin centre and follow the below screenshot

To create a read-write access mode role. Follow the official docs 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/create-users#create-a-read-write-user-account 

 

Pro Tip:  You can create the portal, go to Azure > App Registrations > find the newly created portal and make your friend as "Owner" then add your friend in the environment as "System Customizer" or "System Administrator".  This method is successful so far in my scenario. 

 

Cheers

Hope it helps.

hi @Celia ,

You and your friend need to be on the same Azure Ad (like what you do when creating a trail), if not then you need to create your friend account from Office365 hub , give him Dynamics 365 licenses  and follow the below

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/add-users-to-environment 

 

Now this is half of the battle, the other half is you want to let him work on the portal as "controlled" admin, there is no such a role that will only let him work on portal so you may need to copy System Customizer role and remove some key items from it 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/portals/admin/portal-admin-roles

Thank you,
Manar

As per Raga's post above, but will just add that once the Portal is created/provisioned you are able to remove the Global Admin role and use a lesser role after that.

Thanks, ragavanrajan.

I made the user and gave him my business license (and unchecked all apps except PowerApps)

 

I already have made a portal, do I need to give him permissions in Azure AD or PowerPlatform?
