Announcing General Availability of environment groups and environment routing

Blog

Environment groups and rules help admins manage multiple environments more effectively by applying consistent policies and settings across them. Admins can group related environments by any criteria and apply six key capabilities of managed environments to all of them. These include setting sharing limits for canvas apps, using AI to generate app and solution summaries, and enforcing best practices with solution checker. This ensures that all environments in a group follow the same standards and reduces the need for manual configuration. Environment routing directs new makers to their personal developer environments instead of the default one. Personal developer environments are individual workspaces where makers can build apps and solutions using Microsoft Dataverse without interfering with others’ work. Admins don’t have to worry about makers working in the default environment by mistake. Personal developer environments also come with environment-level governance settings, such as sharing limits and solution checker, making it easier for makers and admins to work in Microsoft Power Platform.
