Disabling PowerApps Portal Custom Errors: so, you think you know where to find it?

This article is applicable to any PowerApps Portal Action.

Recently we set up a PowerApps portal in addition to the existing Dynamics 365 portals.It happened to be a DEV one. What could possibly go wrong?

I was debugging an issue and quickly discovered that custom messages don’t give me any idea of what’s really going on with the portal.

To get the real error you have to replace “friendly” messages with the Yellow Screen of Death (YSOD). Trust me, it makes a big difference. I as able to fix my issue in a minute after I looked at the real error.

So how to I disable custom errors? It’s easy if you know where to go and what to do. And I thought I know but I was wrong.

First, I tried to follow steps which I had on top of my head. This is how I got here:

Usually, you can find a portal under Applications. This is what I thought but it wasn’t there.

So, I went to Google and typed “disable dynamics portal custom errors”.

Then to docs:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/portals/view-portal-error-log

They are pretty good, actually. Except they did answer my question: WHERE DO I GO NOW TO PERFORM PORTAL ACTIONS for PowerApps portal?

The real issue was that I googled “Dynamics 365 portals” what I really had to google – “PowerApps portals”.
