personal App, Organization parameters, database

New Contributor

Hi everyone,


Those are theoretical questions, I just need hints.


I am planning to create a teams personal app for an association (Visual Studio / React)

This app may afterwards be provided for free to other organizations.


For that app, I need a database.

It could be a sharepoint list or a dataverse, but first I need some sort of an initialization.

  1. How that initialization can be done ?
    I have read nothing on that topic.
  2. How to have access to those global configuration parameters where the link to that list / dataverse is saved ?


Thanks for your help,

Hi @gmeunier For initialization of database as Dataverse / SharePoint, Please follow below document. 

and could you please explain a bit more for second query of yours?


Hi@Keshav-MSFT, thank you for your reply.

As said, I am willing to use a personal app built with React.

The idea is not to use PowerApp for 2 main reasons :

  1. The canvas is not reactive (to be used both on PC and smartphone);
  2. Licensing ! I will have from 100 to 300 users, we can't afford providing a licence to all of them.

So that is what I am interested in
But it seems to me that no database can be initiated by the App itself.

Hi@gmeunier please follow the below sample link help to create SharePoint list.
