  • Enable maker welcome content (currently preview)
  • Limit sharing
  • weekly usage insights
  • data policies
  • set up Power Platform pipelines

data policies are important for every environment you have. But this features helps you with an overview of data policies which belongs to the selected environment.

Cause of preview state it should not be used for production. But the solution checker runs checks on your solutions against a set of best practice rules and identify problematic patterns.

Managed environments expects from every user running an app in a managed environment at least

  • Power Apss per User or per app licence
  • D365 Enterprise licence with premium Power Apps usage rights

Same applies for flows. You can read the details in the documentation for licencing.


Now you can decide if you want to pay the licence price for those features. It depends not on the amount of environments you have but on the amount of user who are using those resources.
