What is Power Apps Environment?

A Power Platform environment is a location where the business data, apps, chatbots, and flows of your company may be stored, managed, and shared. Also, it acts as a container to group apps with various roles, security needs, or target audiences.

In addition to other identifiers, accessing Dataverse and apps from external processes (such as PowerShell and the command line interface) requires at least an environment ID.

For example, looking at the URL of a model-driven app would often yield the Dataverse/CRM URL we need to locate the TDS endpoint for a Dataverse instance.
