Error - locked from everything in my app?

Why is my app getting locked all the time?


Suddenly when working everything stops working.

All code fields are locked, i cant save, i cant do anything.



This happen every so often. I need to way 12-24hours for it to start working again.

It does not help to role back a few versions of my app.

It does not help to download my app and upload it again....


I have made several support-tickets to Microsoft, but all they can say is "next time it happens make a ticket so we can view the error live". But as soon as they answer my ticket the error is gone and they have no way of helping.


My powerapp version is :

I have tried all webbrowsers, same error in all.

I have tried logging in to other accounts that have edit rights on the app im working on, same error.

I can start a new app and start working on that one. But i can not work on my current project.

I have had this problem for 3-4 months now. Every project i am working on get held up because of this error. It is not the same app all the time, different project, different apps.


How to fix this?

Re: Error - locked from everything in my app?

Hi @Oskarkuus ,

I'm sorry for your experience.

Here are some tips that you can try:

1)turn off the "Improved app rendering (final validation)" option

(Advanced settings of App settings of your app)

2)restore your app to previous version, then re-publish it again,

3)consider edit your app using previous version of PowerApps Studio for web as below:


What's more, someone met a similar problem , he solved him problem on his own, you could refer this:

Re: Error - locked from everything in my app?

And now about 14 hours after the error happen the issue is resolved.

Now everything works as normal.

Dont know why it started to work, did not do anything....


I cant belive that it is my version of powerapps since this issue have been around for so long now and i have been working with other versions before, and the same issue happend then.


I cant test to turn off : mproved app rendering (final validation)"

Since the app is locked no options in the app settings can be changed.


Restoring the app does not help
