When creating a new Power Platform Solution, you will need to select a Publisher. It is not advisable to use Microsoft’s “out-of-the-box” publishing profiles, primarily for the sake of quickly identifying your own work. The image below displays a total of five publishing profiles, with the first two being Microsoft’s profiles:
A new Publishing Profile can be created in within the PowerApps or Power Automate “Make” portals. Navigate to the Solutions page and click on the Publishers tab. Here you can review and, in some cases, edit existing profiles.
Next, click on “+ New publisher” and complete the following mandatory fields:
|Field name||Description or use|
|Display name||This is display within the publisher sector.|
|Name||This is a unique name for the publisher.|
|Prefix||Acts like a namespace and is prefixed to your solutions objects.|
|Choice value prefix||I tend to use the default value. This number is used when you add options to choices and provides an indicator of which solution was used to add the option.|
Note: The Description and the Contact fields are optional.
Once you are happy with the information, click: Save, and now you are ready to create your first Power Platform solution.
