This includes as content stored in databases through a bunch of entries in what is know as the the Common Data Service entities (CDS Entities). Here is an example, contact information is a type of definition applicable here. Please note that content overall is usually to be considered as secret or confidential information and in the usual course of service operation this type of information is not sent or transmitted over the internet without encryption, so in other words it is securely encrypted.
For more information on Power Apps protection of customer data, including for US Government please see the Microsoft Online Services Trust Center.
Notes on data segregation for Government Community Cloud
Provisioning as part of Power Apps US Government mmeans that the Power Apps service is offered in accordance with what is known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-145.
Microsoft usually refers to this sort of offer as the Government Community Cloud (GCC).
While the logical separation of customer content at the application layer is there, you should knowe about one other important aspect. Power Apps US Government service usually provides your organization with another secondary layer of clean and clear physical segregation for customer content by using the specific infrastructure separate from the infrastructure used for commercial Power Apps customers so Government and Commercial are actually two different scopes entirely! This even includes using Azure services in the Azure Government cloud. To learn more about all of this please see the Azure Government pages we have or please contact us at Dynamics Edge for specific questions so we can help you succeed.
What about customer content located within the United States?
Power Apps US Government services tend to be provided from a variety of datacenters that are physically located in the United States. Your government data therefore stays in the USA or United States of America. So the Power Apps US Government customer content is stored at rest in datacenters physically located only in the United States of America or USA.
Is there a restricted data access by administrators?
YEs. The access to Power Apps US Government customer content by Microsoft administrators is restricted only to personnel who are US citizens. Microsoft personnel that access this sensitive data of yours, actually undergo background investigations in accordance with relevant government standards far before they are permitted to even come near such information.
Regular Power Apps service engineering staff as well as support do not have current standing access to customer content hosted in Power Apps US Government. Any kind of staff who need to request temporary permission elevation that would grant access to customer content must first have passed the following background checks to do so.
RESTRICTED DATA ACCESS BY ADMINISTRATORS includes the following:
Microsoft personnel background checks and screening
Employment History Check Verification of at least seven (7) year employment history
Education Verification Verification of what is the highest degree attained
U.S. Citizenship Verification of true U.S. citizenship
Social Security Number (SSN) Search – this is verification that the provided SSN is valid and proper.
Criminal History Check -> at least a seven (7) year criminal record check for misdemeanor and felony offenses at the county, local level, federal level and state level as well.
Office of Foreign Assets Control List (OFAC) Validation against the Department of Treasury list of groups to check about which U.S. persons are not actually allowed to engage in financial transactions or trade
Bureau of Industry and Security List (BIS) This is validation against the Department of Commerce list of entities and individuals that are barred from engaging in export activities of any kind.
Office of Defense Trade Controls Debarred Persons List (DDTC)- this is validation against the Department of State list of entities and individuals that are barred from engaging in export activities related to the defense industry specifically.
Fingerprinting Check Fingerprint background check against FBI databases for any kind of matches.
CJIS Background Screening – this is a state-adjudicated review of state criminal history and federal too which is done by state CSA appointed authority. This would be the authority within each state that has actually signed up for the Microsoft CJIS IA program.
This above applies to personnel with or requesing standing access or temporary access to any customer content hosted in Power Apps US Government (GCC).
Accreditations and certifications.
Power Apps US Government tends to be designed to support the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) accreditation at a High Impact level. This also could infer alignment to DoD DISA IL2 too. FedRAMP artifacts are generally available for appropriate review by federal customers who are actually required to comply with FedRAMP. The relevant Federal agencies can go ahead and review these artifacts as appropriate and in support of their related review to grant an Authority to Operate (ATO).
Power Apps US Government servicese have been granted a Security Assessment Report (SAR) by a qualified Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). As Microsoft wants to move to refresh FedRAMP artifacts as part of the standard audit cycles, any such policies might updated accordingly and as appropriate.
Power Apps US Government has relevantfeatures designed to support customer’s CJIS Policy requirements for law enforcement agencies. Please visit the Power Apps US Government products page in Microsoft Trust Center for more detailed information related to certifications and accreditations or contact Dynamics Edge for help on this.
Microsoft has ultimately designed the platform and operational procedures to meet the requirements that are aligning with the DISA SRG IL4 compliance framework. Know that the Department of Defense contractor customer base as well as other Federal agencies currently leveraging Microsoft 365 GCC High may want to use the Power Apps US Government GCC High deployment option. This option requires and empowers the customer to leverage Azure AD Government or Active Directory for customer identities, in contrast to GCC which leverages Public Azure AD. For our US Department of Defense contractor customer base, Microsoft operates the service in a manner that enables these customers to meet ITAR commitment and DFARS acquisition regulations.
Power Apps US Government and relation with other Microsoft services
Power Apps US Government includes several features that ultimately allow users to integrate with and connect to other Microsoft enterprise service offerings. This includes Dynamics 365 US Government,,Microsoft 365 US Government, and Microsoft Power Automate US Government. Note that Power Apps US Government is deployed within Microsoft datacenters in a specific manner consistent with a public cloud deployment model with multi-tenant capabilities. Client applications including but not limited to the Power Apps mobile applications, any third-party client application and web client that connects to Power Apps US Government, may technically not part of or included in Power Apps US Government’s accreditation boundary and government customers are responsible for managing them in this respect.
Power Apps US Government leverages the actual Microsoft 365 customer administrator UI or user interface for billing and customer administration.
Microsoft Power Apps US Government maintains the information flow, actual resources, and data management as well while relying on Microsoft 365 to provide the presntation layer visual styles that are shown to the customer administrator through their relevant management console. FedRAMP ATO inheritance impies that Power Apps US Government leverages Azure (including Azure Government) ATOs for infrastructure and platform services, in respective order.
If you adopt the use of Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 and end up setting up policies to help ensure that your users end up connecting to the related services through single sign-on, note that any customer content that is temporarily cached will end up being located in the United States for your information.
Power Apps US Government and third-party services.
Power Apps US Government empowers you to integrate third-party applications into the service through a variety of connectors. The connectors related to how third-party apps, services and applications and services and the transmitting, processing and stroing of your organization’s customer data on a plethora of third-party systems. These system may be outside of the Power Apps US Government infrastructure and you should therefore be careful that they may not be actually covered by the Power Apps US Government data protection commitments and compliance standards.
We recommend that you review the compliance statements and privacy statements provided by the third parties when actually assessing the appropriate use of these kinds of services for your organization’s use cases. Or you could also ask Dynamics Edge to try and help you if you have questions or are unsure of something.
Power Apps US Government and Azure services related to US Government.
The Power Apps US Government services are actually deployed to Microsoft Azure Government. Note that Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is not usually part of the Power Apps US Government accreditation boundary, however it may have reliance upon a customer’s Azure AD tenant for the purposes of customer identity and tenant functions, this can be including federated authentication, licensing and authentication.
At times when an organization’s user who is employing AD FS may be trying to access Power Apps US Government, note that the user could be redirected to a particular login page that could be hosted on the organization’s AD FS server. So know that this user provides her or his credentials to their own organization’s respective AD FS server. This AD FS server within the organization level makes tries to authenticate these credentials by utilizing the organization’s Active Directory infrastructure in this case.
In the event that authentication is successful, note that the organization’s AD FS server issues a SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) ticket that contains important information about the user’s group membership and identity.
AD FS server from the customer then signs this ticket using one half of an asymmetric key pair and then it goes ahead and sends the ticket to Azure AD via the TLS encrypted Transport Layer Security. At that point Azure AD validates the signature by utilzing the other half of what is called the asymmetric key pair and then actually grants access based on the respective info in this ticket.
The user’s group membership information and identity information both remain encrypted in Azure AD. So another way of saying this would be that limited user-identifiable information is stored in Azure AD for security purposes.
Azure AD control implementation and security architecture info is further found in the Azure SSP. IN general, end-users do not usually interact with Azure AD directly.
Power Apps US Government service URLs
Utlize a different set of URLs in order to access Power Apps US Government environments because they are not the same as those in COmmercial, as shown in the following table (the commercial URLs are also shown for contextual reference, in case they are more readily familiar to you).

Regional Discovery Service is deprecated
Effective March 2, 2020, note that the regional Discovery Service has been deprecated.
What is the connectivity between Power Apps US Government and public Azure Cloud Services?
Azure is usually distributed among multiple clouds. SO the default is tenants are permitted with regards to opening the firewall rules to a cloud-specific environment. However note that the cross-cloud networking is different and actually requires opening specific firewall rules to faciltate communication between services that need to get this communication. In the case that you are a Power Apps customer with a bunch of existing SQL environments in the Azure public cloud, you may suppose that you want to access them. IN this case you may want to open specific firewall rules in SQL that point to the Azure Government cloud IP space, for the following datacenters:
For Azure IP ranged Government please contact Dynamics Edge if after reading this you are still unsure regarding Azure Government cloud IP whitelist
Please refer to what is called the Azure Service Tags and IP Ranges and the related US Government Cloud document, paying specific attention on AzureCloud.usgovvirginia as well as AzureCloud.usgovtexas.

Select Enable GCC mode, then do as follows.
After this, on the sign-in page, select Sign in.
At this point notice that the mobile application will now use the US Government Cloud domain to look up users. If unsure at this point contact Dynamics Egde for more information.
On-premises data gateway configuration
To transfer data securely and quickly between let’s say a canvas app that’s actually built in Power Apps and maybe a data source that isn’t even in the cloud, such as for the sake of example, an on-premises SharePoint site or on-premises SQL Server database , please install an on-premises data gateway. For help on this contact Dynamics Edge.
If your organization (also known as atenant) has already successfully connected the on-premises data gateway with a good configuration for Power BI US Government, then what you should know is that the configuration as well as the process that your organization should have executed in order to enable that applies as follows. That configuration should also enable the on-premises connectivity for Power Apps. Nonetheless, in the case you are not even able to connect to your tenant at this point, then you might actually need to go through a specific process to add your tenant to an approved list. This usually entails enabling this capability for your tenant. If you have to do this let Dynamics Edge know if you are unsure of the next step or run into any issues or get stuck regarding this.
What are the Power Apps US Government feature limitations?
Some of the features that are now available in the commercial version of Power Apps are not available to Power Apps US Government customers for reasons related to security, and because they are two different services for your highest integrity sensitive data needs. Some features in commercial need to be done differently in government due to the security compliance mentioned in this document. The Microsoft Power Apps team tends to be actively working (or already finished in possible cases) – for more info ask Dynamics Edge – on these following features so that they become available to US Government customers:
Common Data Service analytics. Check with Dynamics Edge if you want to know the status of these or the others below.

The Per user plan empowers individual users to create a set of unlimited flows based on the unique needs and use cases of your organization or government agency.
Here is Power Automate RPA Pricing July 2020 and August 2020 info:
The Power Automate RPA Pricing is $40/mo as of July 23, 2020.

You can implement flows with a reserved capacity that serves an unlimited users across an organization.
What are the differences in Azure Logic Apps Pricing versus Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) Pricing in July 2020 and August 2020?
Please make a note that unlike in the past, when there used to be per Flow run billing in Flow as opposed to per action billing in Azure Logic Apps pricing, now the models are sort of more in line. Flow (Power Automate) has API calls included in the package, which are like the per action in Azure Logic Apps. There is no longer any benefit to try to optimize for Flow runs by stuffing actions in them like before, now Power Automate and Logic Apps are more similar in this respect. You may need the per-flow plan for use cases which require a very high number of calls (action steps) per month.
There are also some differences between Power Automate and Logic Apps that were tested and confirmed in June 2020, May 2020 etc and may be still true today as of July 23, 2020. For example, the Common Data Services or CDS connector has a "Current" or (Current) environment selector – this may be only in Power Automate. (if needed you can ask us for Dynamics 365 pricing in July 2020, August 2020 etc. or Common Data Service pricing). There are other differences and we can go over these with you if you like in a Power Automate training session or consulting session specifically on the topic of "Power Automate Pricing Training" for your convenience.

We found out, working with multiple support teams that such use case is not really supported right now and we were strongly encouraged to submit this idea as soon as possible on this feedback forum for potential review by the global community and the respective Microsoft teams. (Initially submitted on this forum, as of 7/21/2020)
In current model as of July 21, 2020. rules blocked by WAF in Azure Front Door charge the inbound rate even if the WAF rule blocked it. This is because the request is passing through Azure Front Door + WAF as one single unit for the purposes of billing. This is similar to how Azure CDN and all other global Layer 7 routing solutions Azure has currently works and bills when they are at the global level. This is confirmed by Azure Support as of 7/21/2020.
Either by changes or features in Azure Front Door, or via another way, this idea submission requests the implementation of a global router functionality that does not charge for inbound traffic that is blocked at the "edge" or perhaps a better term with be the "rules" level. In other words, functionality to support rules that if/when they define a block or deny state, that inbound ingress (especially) is not charged, and preferably not the egress either if possible for the blocked traffic triggered in this way (perhaps with option of a mode whether to respond to the connection, which would incur a small charge, or not respond at all, which would incur no charge. This idea submission is focused more on just the version that would not respond to the connection at all, as existing functionality in current products already processes and bills all requests and returns responses already all the time as-is â€“ however, this nuance is mentioned in case it could still be relevant for this kind of functionality to offer the option of the two at that level of the rule ).
Also, we would prefer not charge by how many times the rule was triggered per period, instead we would rather prefer to pay for each definition of these kinds of rules themselves on a per rule per hour basis or something like that (however, hopefully a reasonable pricing either way).
The preferred way of blocking this kind of traffic would be to have the option to simply hang the connection and not return a response if possible (sort of like NSG’s can do at the Virtual Network level, except to apply this at the top global level somehow), since existing functionality already can block and return a response e.g. APIM policy, even to some extent Front Door rules, etc. It is desired that this specific kind of "blocking" actually be somewhat similar to perhaps the way NSG’s block traffic on Virtual Networks (for example) that don’t match an NSG allow rule or that matched an NSG deny rule – the infrastructure just doesn’t return any response at all and there is nothing that processes the request directly when the rule doesn’t match. This is for purposes of only high level illustration and this specific example may or may not be based on exact specific working models of current Azure products, and we do not necessarily imply a specific implementation methodology in this idea submission, this specific paragraph would be intended more as a general conceptual reference and there could be likely more than one approach here.
Front Door provides rate limiting by IP, however there is only a short amount of time the IP can be throttled before it can simply send the request again. Also, what if there are some use cases where there are different users all from same IP, or even let’s suppose from another part of Azure infrastructure that has fixed IP’s? In that case throttling would not be appropriate at all. Even if everyone had different unique IP’s, the throttling is only of max limited duration, and different IP’s could continue to send very large payloads and even if blocked by WAF and throttled by Azure Front Door, even at the throttled rate if they kept sending large payloads even just from one throttled IP, it could cause the bill to skyrocket just for traffic that was simply blocked by WAF at the end.
Azure API Management does not charge by request. So one could argue we could consider using that. In fact, we would consider to use that over Front Door just because APIM doesn’t charge by ingress payload of the request, and provides some other benefits such as being specifically tailored for making API’s – so it would be a better fit for use cases we are thinking of subject to this very idea. However, the requests blocked by APIM would still be processed by APIM. In some use cases, this could affect other users of the APIM. For some use cases we’d have to crudely scale up the APIM instance to an amount so high that it would account for this rogue usage. Although APIM might provide some more advanced throttling mechanisms than Azure Front Door that could work for us, even APIM throttled requests might still have to be processed in order to return a too many requests status – this processing itself might be undesirable in some use cases. We can confirm working with APIM team (7/21/2020) that there is currently no workaround to attempt to bypass the APIM processing layer in any way, shape or form or with any kind of temporary workaround that would be along the lines of this idea submission, because all requests sent to APIM are processed to APIM. To be clear, we do not refer to requests routed through the backend through APIM, we mean requests sent to APIM endpoint itself. While we won’t be billed for payload size of ingress when using APIM like with Front Door, and while the backend will not always get all requests if we have the policies structured in specific way, no matter what, all the requests sent to APIM, even those blocked by an APIM policy, must always be processed by APIM and could affect all other users of that APIM. Moreover, Azure API Management (APIM) is not at the global layer – this introduces limitations (no matter how big the APIM instance is scaled out to and no matter how many regions) that would not apply at a global router level like Front Door. So even if the features we wanted were possible at APIM layer, there would be the global routing part missing. On top of that, APIM in and of itself does not currently support any way to avoid processing some APIM requests based on rules and not others.
One might argue we could place Front Door with WAF in front of the APIM to achieve our goals. However, Front Door’s matching engine is not so much a good fit as APIM for the use cases subject to this idea submission, and we would probably need APIM’s level of matching at the Front Door level. Moreover as of 7/21/2020, all requests, even those blocked by WAF at Front Door, will be billed at not only the per-million-request rate for the request itself, but even billed at the ingress per GB rate (currently around $0.01 or so as of this writing 7/21/2020) regardless of the fact that it was blocked by WAF and never routed through to the backend pools assigned to Azure Front Door. This is because WAF + Azure Front Door is currently treated as one single unit for purposes of billing under the hood, and therefore no workaround exists within Front Door either for this. As a side-note, Azure CDN and similar global routing offerings are working in a similar manner for billing purposes, so they also cannot be considered as an attempt to temporarily get around inbound billing as they work in similar way and are even less of a good fit for that specific use case – Front Door and APIM are the closest and it’s almost as if they were merged somehow or in some way they might form the basis of such a functionality that might fit our use cases in this idea submission.
To be able to make more informed, predictable strategy about cost in terms of specific, billing-sensitive use cases such as public API’s and even to some extent, semi-public and private API’s where this may be more important than in other API use cases (i.e. ones where current, already existing functionality is good enough), and within such billing-sensitive use cases to be able to avoid as much as possible any undesired, unpredictable results like unexpected billing for blocked traffic, we would like to request the implementation of a global router solution similar to the elements above that combine Front Door + APIM which would have the ability to cause inbound traffic not to be billed. This in summary might be something like just APIM itself having a global layer like Front Door does but using APIM instead as the engine – plus an NSG-like-for VM’s-except-at-the-global-layer blocking option somewhere which would cause requests not to be processed but not bill them either, so not quite like WAF works right now with Front Door, a bit different from that. However, the aforementioned statements are for conceptual reference only and any actual specific implementation methodology is not necessarily indicated in this idea submission.
Thanks for considering this idea.
By the way:
To be clear and complete, if you are wondering why did we not mention Traffic Manager here or consider Traffic Manager instead of Front Door? Well, while Azure Traffic Manager could be considered a global routing solution at the DNS level, it does not have a rules engine that matches by specific things like paths, etc. In fact as of 7/21/2020, the Azure Traffic Manager routing methods are Priority, Weighted, Performance, Geographic, Multivalue, and Subnet – Traffic Manager does not match by things like specific paths, or API keys, or anything like that. Azure Front Door and APIM both provide a particular kind of rules engine which is for different use case than Traffic Manager and is intended for use cases like routing to different backends based on specific conditions being matched like path, API key, and more. Where Traffic Manager actually might be more appropriate for something like the use cases subject to this idea submission, might possibly be as one or more of the backend endpoints to something like this global router solution (as one of many potential approaches), however Traffic Manager by itself does not match by things like API key, by specific paths, etc.
