  • How to create custom CDS security roles.
  • How to specify CDS Entity access permissions in CDS security roles.
  • How to apply custom CDS security roles to users when sharing PowerApps.
  • How to connect the XrmToolBox to a CDS instance.
  • How to use the XrmToolBox to view what security roles are applied to a user.
  • How to use the XrmToolBox to change what security roles are applied to a user.
  • How to package CDS security roles in PowerApps Solutions.
