Portal visitors can authenticate to Power Apps Portal by using local user credentials or external identity provider accounts. Visitors who are sent an invitation code (by the portal administrator) have the option to redeem the code in the process of signing up for a new user account. A new visitor can register for a new user account either by providing a username and password or by signing in through an external provider. This is called   Open Registration. By enabling open registration , we are allowing any anonymous visitor to the portal to create a new user account which is not ideal use case. So it is better to disable open registration for portals ...

Recently, I have come across a requirement to set up partner portal for our partners (Installers) to manage work orders and incidents. First step is to configure partner portal . That was done successfully. And second step is to create a web page to show work orders list (using entity list) and configure entity form in insert mode to create work orders. After following the above steps, we were still not successful in creating work order from portal. After some research , came to know that we need to install “Field Service Add-On” separately after installing the portal. Here are the step by step process to do that. Step 1:   Navigate to   https://make.powerapps.com ...
