Power Platform Dev Weekly #160
Welcome to the Power Platform Dev Weekly!
Recently Microsoft announced automatic deletion of inactive developer environment (you can checkout the official link below) and on that topic EY Kalman blogged about this change so we can understand the implication better.
Olena on the other hand had two blogs on environments; first where she explains the definition of inactivity for an environment and another she explains DLP policy for a developer environment. Both of them are good reads.
