Before model-driven apps can be created, a environment with a Microsoft Dataverse database must be provisioned. This chapter introduces the concept of an environment and what role it plays in the creating, manage and deployment of model-driven apps. Students are also provided with a quick overview of the look and feel that every model-driven app has and the common functionality of model-driven apps
Solutions are used by customizers and developers to package related customizations together so that they can be managed and deployed as a single unit. We will see what components can be added to a solution and how they are essentially the building blocks of your environment.
Model-driven apps are the building block of any business solution. For instance, we could create our own "event management" app. The app will group together everything our user needs from the CDS and the components we have built.
Table are used to model and store business data in a model-driven apps. Conceptually they are like tables in a relational database. Microsoft Dataverse defines quite some build-in tables like contact, account, case... but almost always customizers will have to create new tables. In this chapter you will learn all aspects of how to create new tables.
Just like accounts and contacts have relationships in Microsoft Dataverse, we can provide relationships for our own tables. You will learn what types of relationships are possible and how to configure them.
Columns define the individual data items that can be used to store data in a table. Columns are sometimes also called fields or attributes
Forms are used to visualize table rows. In this module you will learn about the different Form Types and how to create or customize forms using the Form Designer.
Business rules essentially automate control logic on tables, without the need for development. Think of making columns required depending on the value of another column for instance.
Offer the data needed for different scenario's with views. With a view, we can either look at all table rows, or we could apply some filtering, sorting, etc.
The custom page is a new page type within a model-driven app, which brings the power of canvas apps into model-driven apps. Custom pages can be used to display data from 2 or more tables in a single window or display external data in a model-driven app using one of the many available connectors.
Reporting is essential when working with data. In this module you will learn how you can create Charts and Dashboards. This module also shows how you can integrate Microsoft Dataverse and Model-driven apps with Power BI
This module teaches how you can implement a robust security model in Model-Driven apps using Business Units, Security Roles, Users and Teams.
