D365 Portal - Admin Center - "portal development status"

Posted on by 260

Hi all, 

I've got a new field appearing on the portal admin page, called portal "development status"  with the options of Prototype, Development, Test, UAT & Live.

I can't find any release notes with this feature. Has anyone came across this or have any ideas for what it does?

       For existing provisioned portals, this drop-down list is available on the Portal Details tab and no status is selected by default.

       This drop-down list is available only for the portals of type production.

       This field is used by Microsoft to understand the usage pattern of this portal and does not affect any functionality. If you use different names for development lifecycle, please select the one which is closer in purpose. This can be changed at a later point of time once portal is provisioned.

    Hi Martin,

    According to the options of the field, it should be used to store your environment type.

    These options are a complete development process from prototyping to final use.

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards
