Module 5: Security

Lesson 2: Practice Lab – Create users

Scenario

You are a functional consultant for your organization Contoso. You are assigned to work on a project for your client Fabrikam. You will be continuing your work on the model-driven Knowledge Admin app. In this practice, you will be creating a dashboard and modifying the app to include it.

We need to add additional users to be able to use the application we have built. You will be adding three users to the tenant; one manager and two additional users. For this practice you will be adding them and assigning their licenses. In future practices we will add security roles and organize the team members.

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 https://admin.Powerplatform.microsoft.com
