Users in the CDS

Users in a CDS database are created automatically when a user is given a license. Users are created in the root business unit and, except for users with administration roles, are not given a security role and are therefore prevented from accessing the CDS.

After creating a user, you will need to do the following:

  • Change the user's business unit so that they are in the correct place in the hierarchy.
  • Apply one or more security roles to the user.
If there is only one business unit, the root, then you will not need to change the user's business unit.

You manage users, along with the other security features covered in this chapter, from the Settings window for your environment in the Power Platform admin center, as shown in the following screenshot:
