The core platform provides makers with capabilities to configure, customize, and use as-is in low-code/no-code ways and extend using professional development techniques to meet business needs.

Typical areas that describe the core platform capabilities are:

  • Content management system (CMS) capabilities to store webpages and site content.
  • Data types and components, such as forms and lists, to allow a user to interact with data in Microsoft Dataverse.
  • User authentication supporting OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, and SAML 2.0 standard protocols.
  • Security using a robust role-based access control (RBAC) authorization model that provides granular control over permissions on webpages and data.
  • A configurable global search that allows users to search content within a website.
  • Extensibility options provided by code components, Web APIs, Liquid code, client-side scripts, custom style sheets, and web templates.
