Dataverse Environment Permissions for Power Platform involves leveraging Dataverse Teams for enhancing the user permissions management. This can be done in the Power Platform environment. Here, Dataverse Group Teams play a significant role due to their ability to get aligned with the security roles that provide a way for permission customization. Michael Roth, the presenter is recognized in this context.

Dataverse Teams provide a convenient way to share business objects while promoting collaboration across business units. Despite belonging to a single business unit, a team can involve users from different business units. This provides the flexibility of associating a user with multiple teams.

  • Dataverse Teams include different types of teams like owner team, access team, and Azure AD group team. These teams carry out various operations.
  • Owner team posses records and assigned security roles. It facilitates full access rights on the owned records and the members are added manually.
  • Access team doesn't own any records or carry security roles. However, they have privileges defined through their individual security roles and by roles from the teams they participate in.
  • Azure AD group team functions like an owner team as it can own records while having assigned security roles.

Importantly, the system facilitates team operations to perform tasks like accessing the team page, creating a new team, editing a team, and managing team members. This functionality forms an integral part of the Power Platform Admin Center.
