Power Apps Portals Web API reaches general availability

April 5 2021

The Web API for Microsoft Power Apps Portals has reached general availability. The API gives customers the ability to write, update, and delete data entities in their Portals environment.

Senior program manager Neeraj Nandwana announced the news and explained that administrators will need to enable the Web API for each entity on which they plan to use it. He also explained that this is an API for use within a portals environment, not as a public API:

The portals Web API is built for creating a rich user experience inside portal pages. It isn’t optimized for third-party services or application integration. It is recommended to use Microsoft Dataverse OData Web API for third-party services or application integration use cases.
