Open Model Apps Url Using Unique Name


When generating links for records, lists or reports in a Dataverse environment it is important that they open the specific application they relate to so users have the best experience. To see more details about generating links for Dataverse click here.

This image shows the message bar displayed within Dataverse when you open a link not directed to a specific application.

Previously in order to open a specific application using a link you had to create the it with the app suffix url or append the appid parameters to the url. In order to get either of those dynamically you need to query the Model-driven Apps (appmodule) entity and return the url attribute for the suffix or the appmoduleid attribute for the app id.

Using App Suffix

https://<Your Org><Your App Suffix>/main.aspx?pagetype=entitylist&etn=contact


Using App Id

https://<Your Org>

Recently when creating a new App in the maker portal I saw the creation screen now includes a Unified Interface URL which populates when you set the name of the app. The format of the url looks like this.

https://<Your Org><Your App Unique Name>/main.aspx?pagetype=entitylist&etn=contact

Because the unique name does not change between environment you can now eliminate any calls you previously did to the Model-driven App entity. You may still need to get the host url for the environment if using Power Apps or Power Automate.

To get the url in Power Automate you can make a call to any Dataverse entity and then parse out the url from the value of any record you return.


The get the url in Power Apps you have some options. You can call a Power Automate flow which will call out to a CDS record and return the host url using the same method I described earlier or you can utilize the CDS Environment URL PCF component from Dan Cox.

  2. It seems that Nintendo have had the Mario series around since the dawn of time. You can almost picture a cave man with a GameBoy saying "Play super Mario game". The series has had an amazing rate of success over the last thirty or so years. It was 1981 when Mario first made his appearance as the Jumpman in Donkey Kong. twitch viral

  3. The reign of the Xbox is almost over. As of late the PS3 has been looking better and better. Looks like 2008 will be the year of the PlayStation. PlayStation 3 has many big name titles coming out this year and if the all games from the list are all actually released this year, all we can say is WOW. Note: The following list in no way represents the entire list of exclusive titles for each console. However, it gives us a pretty good idea of the games rumored to be released this year.

  4. Deck-building games is a fast-growing genre that is gaining more and more fans around the world. You start out with a lame deck consisting of a few basic cards and then all options are open. It's up to you to find the best combos of cards, add them to your deck and gradually build a "machine" that works better than other players'. It all started with Dominion, then came Thunderstone, Ascention, Nightfall... and now Legendary! But Legendary is much more than a simple deck-building game. Read on to find what's different about it. buy twitch followers
