The topic of my first Portals Community Call back in January was the how to build a portal that allows a customer to view and print invoices. While solutions for this has been described by others (including Megan V. Walker’s excellent post), I also presented a different approach that I thought was worth covering in a blog post so that I could get a bit more into the technical details.

For the most part, Entity Lists try to mirror the functionality of the selected model-driven form in CDS. This means that certain settings on the model-driven form can have a significant impact on how things work in Power Apps Portals, event if it is not obvious at first. In this post, I’ll cover one of those not-so-obvious (at least to me) settings – Show Related Records.

For the most part I don’t blog about the (roughly) monthly releases for Power Apps Portals, mostly because they deal with bug fixes for relatively obscure issues. However, last month I was happy to see a few items on the list that I’ve been waiting for, and I thought were worth sharing.

My latest article for MSDynamicsWorld.com was published today. It talks about the Power Apps Portals-related features in the 2020 Wave 1 Release Plans announced by Microsoft today, including updates to the Power Apps Portals Studio, and the CRUD API we’ve all been waiting for!

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 question popped up a couple weeks ago about the best way to force everyone to have to login to your Power Apps Portals before getting access to anything. At first I gave a very wrong answer – thankfully MVP Nick Doelman corrected me, and in the process, we all learned another thing about licensing.

Caching has long been a hot topic when it comes to the Portals technology – so much so that it used in the name of top rated Power Apps Portals podcast “Refresh the Cache” hosted by MVPs Nick Doelman and Colin Vermander. So what is caching, why is it important for Power Apps Portals, and what’s changed about it recently?

Even though almost everyone now completely understands and agrees with the new licensing scheme for Power Apps Portals (right?), I still get questions on it from time to time (or is it all the time?). So I thought I’d share my own personal interpretation of some of the nuances.
