The Microsoft Power Platform admin center is the central portal for administrators to manage environments and settings for Microsoft Power Platform applications like Power Apps, Power Automate, and Dynamics 365 (including Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Insights, and Dynamics 365 Customer Service). This video and article provide an overview of the admin center and its key functions.
Accessing the Power Platform Admin Center
You can access the admin center at admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com. Log in with your Microsoft credentials. The homepage displays a dashboard with usage information.
The Power Platform admin center has four main sections, highlighted in the video.
This is where administrators can view, create, and manage their tenant’s environments, which contain apps, flows, databases, and other components. Admins can control security, make backups, and manage environment settings here.
View usage metrics for your Power Platform apps across three categories—database, file, and log storage. Identify trends and areas to improve in this section.
In Settings, admins can manage tenant-wide settings and previews for new features across all environments. Settings also can be adjusted to customize platforms to fit business needs.
Help + Support
In this section, you can access help documentation and support resources for the Power Platform and Dynamics 365.
The Power Platform admin center helps provide valuable oversight and control, including:
- Managed role-based access to environments and data
- Ability to plan environment strategy and capacity
