Given that you need to setup Power Platform Pipelines, here’s a post for you!
This post will walk you through on how you can setup Power Platform Pipelines.


Here’s what you need to setup in order to enable Power Platform Pipelines –

  1. You need to enable Managed Environments for the environments which need to participate in Power Platform Pipelines. Here’s a post on Managed Environment which I’ve written in the past – Enable Managed Environments in Power Platform Admin Center

    Given that all participating environments have been enabled with Managed Environments, select an Environment which is supposed to a “Host” environment where all the Pipelines master data will house and then go to it’s Dynamics 365 Apps section from Resources to install Power Platform Pipelines into that environment.

  2. Once you are in, click on Install app and then search for Power Platform Pipelines.
  3. Confirm that you are about to install this Solution.
  4. Once installed, go to Power Apps Maker Portal (https://make.powerapps.com/) and then select the Host environment in which you have installed Power Platform Pipelines on.
    Then go to Apps and you’ll see Deployment Pipeline Configuration app. Play that app!

    Let’s see how you can set the environments up first!

Setting up Environments

Here’s how you can setup your Environments in the –

  1. Once you are in the Deployment Pipeline Configuration App, go to Environments and create a New record.
  2. Then, enter all the details. Also, mention if the Environment type is Development Environment or Target Environment.

  4. In case you are wondering how to you find the Environment ID, here’s where you’ll find the Environment ID in Power Platform Admin Center (https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com/environments), select the environment and you’ll see the details as below –
  5. Once all the Environments are set in the Deployment Manager, here’s how it should look

Configure Deployment Pipelines

Now that your environments are set, let’s also configure the Deployment Pipelines –

  1. Go to Pipelines and create a New record.
  2. Now, fill in all the relevant information and save the record.
  3. Now, link your Managed Environments in the Linked Deployment Environment grid below. Then click on Add Existing Environments button.
  4. And once you add, they’ll appear like this while selecting them in lookups. Then click Add.
  5. Once added the Development Environments, go ahead and create new Pipeline Stages too.
  6. In the new Deployment Stage, I’ll simply tag the Production Environment and save the record to keep this example simple.

    At this point, your Pipeline is all set to Run.

    Shortly, I’ll share another post on how you can Run a Pipeline in Power Platform!
