[Update] jQuery 2.1.1 retirement in Microsoft Power Apps service

As part of a recent service update designed to improve security within Microsoft Power Apps, we recently upgraded jQuery from 2.1.1 to version 3.6.0, which made jquery-2.1.1.min.js unavailable within your environment. We have restored jquery-2.1.1.min.js for use in your environment on Friday, October 21, 2022, and have temporarily postponed its retirement until October 2023.

How does this affect me?

We have detected that your environment is utilizing our jQuery static resource endpoint. This update should unblock scripts and files that utilized hardcoded links to the previous jQuery version and were affected by this recent change.

Important changes to Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform predefined and imported Solution security role updates

We have made a change to predefined and imported Solution security role updates within the Power Platform.

This change allows for use of the system’s predefined security roles, such as Environment Maker and Basic User, which can be customized based on business needs. Updated predefined security roles can be reset to the default system settings by removing all the updates.
