We can use the RecordInfo function to obtain information about a particular data source record.

We can use the RecordInfo function in the Canvas PowerApps with Dataverse data sources to verify that the current app user ( the user using the app) has one or more of the following permissions to interact with a specific record in the data source.

  1. RecordInfo.DeletePermission Does the current user have permission to remove this record from the data source?
  2. RecordInfo.EditPermission Does the current user have permission to modify this record in the data source?
  3. RecordInfo.ReadPermission Does the current user have permission to read this record from the data source?

The RecordInfo function will return a Boolean value, true or false. It will also return false if the record is blank.

What ist Dataverse?

Dataverse is a data management platform developed by Microsoft. It is designed to help organizations store, share, and analyze data in a secure and scalable way.

Dataverse is built on top of Azure, Microsoft's cloud computing platform, and uses the Common Data Model (CDM) to structure and manage data. It allows organizations to create and manage data entities, relationships, and security permissions, and to integrate data from a variety of sources, such as Excel, Dynamics 365, and external data sources.

One of the main benefits of Dataverse is that it enables organizations to create and share data-driven applications and solutions, such as custom business apps, dashboards, and reports. It also provides tools for data governance, including data lineage, data quality, and data security.

Dataverse is typically used by organizations that need to manage and analyze large amounts of data, or that need to create and share data-driven applications and solutions. It is often used in combination with other Microsoft products, such as Power BI, Dynamics 365, and Azure Data Lake.
