Bulk share Powerapps

HI There,

 

I am looking to see if there is an easy way to share a powerapp with many c500 users in one go (will need to do it 500 times for 5 apps) . I can type the names in one by one which will take forever but is there a way of doing this in bulk?

 

The long term solution is to use an AD security group but this will take a very long time to go through the corporate cogs here, but I need something quick and easy to do before this can happen

 

thanks in Advance

Re: Bulk share Powerapps

Groups are the bulk way of doing this. While getting new groups created is usually a longer process in most organizations, are you sure there's not an existing group? That's always worth checking into, and is usually a quick answer in most shops. Just in case 500 is everyone at your company, there are already built in groups that include everyone. Also, azure AD premium can set group membership automatically based on some attribute, like office location. I know that would still take a while, but in case your shop has access to Azure AD Premium, that could help speed things up a bit.

 

And, to be clear, by "groups" I'm referring to security groups, not distribution lists or Office 365 Groups.

thanks @Mike2500  we are >100K employees here ( hence the slowness to get stuff done...)  I was hoping for a quick and dirty way to load in a bunch of users ahead of getting the Security groups populated

Definitely a major pain in PowerApps.  I can create an app, do everything possible with it, and publish it to whomever I want in an organization - but ONLY one by one.  Why can't I also create user groups to publish to?

 

Understand you can use Security Groups for this - but as the OP mentioned, it can be a MAJOR pain and delay to do this via your company's IT.

If you are looking to share with everyone - this option is available in the share.  Just type in everyone for the name and it should show you the option.

Of course, not helpful if it's to just a group.

Would be nice to do this through PowerShell.
