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.

In the summer when I did a series of posts on one way of customizing the registration process for Portal users, Dileep Singh (@rulesrchanged) – the head of Power Apps Portals at Microsoft – reminded everyone not to forget about how you can customize the registration experience if you’re using Azure AD B2C. In this post, I’ll go through the steps to do just that.

Azure AD B2C is Microsoft’s preferred identity provider for Power Apps Portals. In this post, I’ll provide an overview of the technology, why it’s Microsoft’s preferred identity provider, and a few tips on how to set it up.

Last time I gave an overview of authentication with Power Apps Portals, and I mentioned that external authentication is the way to go. In this post I dive a bit deeper into external authentication.

If you’re new to Power Apps Portals, or you’re an Adxstudio veteran, Portal authentication can be a tricky concept – there are a lot of options, and since we’re dealing with getting access to potentially sensitive data, you want to make sure you’re doing it right. I’ve got a few posts lined up on this subject, but I thought I’d start with a general overview of how authentication works in Power Apps Portals.

While not officially a series, I’ve done a few posts now on how to use CSS to modify some of the out-of-the-box experiences within PowerApps Portals. This week, I’ll show you show to convert the dropdown used to select the current view for an Entity List into tabs.

A question that’s popped up a few times on the community forums is around a solution that would allow PowerApps Portals users to upload an Excel or CSV file and have records created in the CDS/Dynamics database. Some others have suggested some answers, so I’d thought I’d summarize, plus offer another possible solution.

While perusing the latest release notes for PowerApps Portals, I came across a note that Microsoft has added support for the HTTP/X-Content-Type-Options HTTP Header. Since it’s something I’ve run into in the past, but not something that many Dynamics/Power Platform developers may have seen, I thought I’d provide a quick summary of what it’s for.

There are certain cases where you can do everything you’d think is required to setup an editable Entity Form, yet for some reason it keeps appearing as read-only. In this post, I’ll explain why. Spoiler alert: I don’t have a great workaround for this problem, but to save some other people the headache of trying to figure out what’s going on, I thought I’d put together a quick post.
