Recently, Microsoft announced PowerApps ISV Studio public preview which is I think a turning point for partner ecosystem which provides a unified cross-tenant view of all applications distributed by ISV to customers.
Advantage of this important step is helping Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to monitor and manage their applications which has simply not been possible in the past.
So, by participating in the preview wave, you can experience the benefits of a unified view of PowerApps and Dynamics 365 CE apps which can help you track your apps and get information about cross-tenant apps to better support your customers. You can also learn about your installation base on which you can evaluate the success and potential failure of your application installation attempts. In addition, you can check the installed versions for different clients and environments; this will help you evaluate the impact of maintaining an application and its overall adoption rate.
To access the public preview of ISV Studio, navigate to https://aka.ms/ISVStudio.
Here are the pre-requisites to access the ISV Studio:
- The ISV must be associated with a Microsoft Registered Partner Organization [ISV] that has one or more supported applications published on AppSource. Supported apps include model-driven apps built using Power Apps and Dynamics 365 apps, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Dynamics 365 Customer Service.
- The ISV must have an Azure Active Directory (AAD) account, and this account must be configured as a contributor or application owner in Partner Center for the specific ISV.
- To be noted at last, ISV Studio does not support applications installed on client sovereign clouds.
Note: If you want more users to gain access to ISV Studio, they can add themselves as application contributors in the Partner Center. Instructions can be found in User Management on the Cloud Partner Portal. For more detail click here.
