Module 2: Data Model

Lesson 6: Practice Lab – Additional entity options


You are a functional consultant for your organization Contoso. You are assigned to work on a project for your client Fabrikam. You are working on the data model you started in the prior practice. In this practice you are enabling some entity options that can only be done using the classic solution explorer.

To view the data model you are building, view Image[MB-200]_M02L02_Creating_Entities_Fields.png in the Lab Resources.

In this practice, you will be performing the following tasks.

  1. Enabling the Feedback option on Knowledge Assessment. This will cause the system to create the relationship between Knowledge Assessment and the CDM Feedback entity.

  2. You will enable auditing on the Knowledge Assessment entity.

  3. You will be updating the icon on the Knowledge Assessment entity, so it is not using the default icon.

Important Note: This lab will provide you with an actual Office 365 tenant and licenses for the Power Platform applications you will be using in this course. You will only be provided with one tenant for the practice labs in this course. The settings and actions you take within this tenant do not roll-back or reset, whereas the virtual machine you are provided with does reset each time you close the lab session. Please be aware that Office 365 is evolving all the time. The instructions in this document may be different from what you experience in your actual Office 365 tenant. It is also possible to experience a delay of several minutes before the virtual machine has network connectivity to begin the labs.

Exercise 1 - Acquire Tenant Information and Connect

Note: If you have already completed a practice recently, the virtual machine might pick up where you left off and you will not need to login again.  In that case you can skip ahead to exercise two and resume.

Task 1 – Connect to the Power platform administration portal

  1. On Virtual machine MB200-Dynamics_Lab, sign in as Admin with the password Pa55w.rd if you are not already logged in.

  2. Outside the VM in the online lab interface click Files and choose D365 Credentials. This will allocate an Office 365 tenant for you to use in these labs.  It will display the admin email and password for your tenant.  You should copy this information to notepad or similar for your reference.

  3. In MB200-Dynamics_Lab launch Microsoft Edge from the taskbar. By default, the browser opens Office 365. Use the O365 credentials you just acquired in the previous step to login.

  4. Navigate in the browser to the Power Platform admin portal at [].

Exercise 2 – Enable Entity Options

In this exercise, you will enable the Feedback option on Knowledge Assessment as well as enable auditing. You will then update the icon on the Knowledge Assessment entity.
