Power Pipelines Explained (Step by step)

Hi Readers

This will be a crisp read but it covers all information to set up power pipelines as of January 2023.

We are going to explore ‘Power Pipelines’ today. It is a part of power platform ALM.

Both makers and developers can use it.

What is it?

My definition: Automate solution deployment in power platform including Dynamics 365 CE apps.

Microsoft’s Version: Pipelines in Power Platform aim to democratize application lifecycle management (ALM) for Power Platform and Dynamics 365 customers by bringing ALM automation and continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) capabilities into the service in a manner that’s more approachable for all makers, admins, and developers.

Current Status: Preview (do not use for production environments)

Expected General Availability: Unknown


Managed environments only

Power Platform admin or DataVerse Admin

Minimum environments 3 but recommended 4

Step 1: Create a host environment for pipelines

Step 2: Go to resources
