The fetchxml Liquid tag is arguably the most powerful Liquid tag in Power Apps Portals – it allows you to meet complex requirements for the display of data. But, if you combine it with a complex Entity Permissions model, you could find yourself getting unexpected errors. In this post I’ll cover what can cause those errors, and how to work around them.

A topic I find that often leads to confusion for those new to Dynamics 365 Portal development (and even for those who have been doing it for a while) is the various options for displaying an Entity List or an Entity Form on a page. So in this week’s post, let’s look at the options.

A question was asked on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Community forums about how to hide or show a workflow action button based on the current user’s role, and since there are a few different ways to do this, I thought it was worthy of a blog post.

During last week’s eXtreme365 event in Austin, Texas, I was lucky enough to co-present a session with Nikita Polyakov (a Senior R&D Solution Architect at Microsoft, with a focus on Dynamics 365 Portal implementations). One of the tips he mentioned during the session was about using Liquid to decide which Entity Form to display on a page – it’s a very cool technique that seems to be underused. Then, a question showed up on the Dynamics 365 Community forums where that technique could be used to solve the problem. So I figured I’d write a quick blog post to get the word out on using Liquid to determine which Entity Form to display on a page.

In my previous blog post, I talked about the overall page structure for a Dynamics 365 Portals page, and the main elements included in the rendered page, including the Header, Footer, and the Page Content. In this post, I get into the details about where code might be within the Page Content.
