Sharing PoweApp between two organizations

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to sharing a PowerApp to an external user from my organization and I have the following error:



The PowerApp reads the data from an Excel hosted in One Drive for Business through a flow, in one account related to the tenant Then, I shared the app and the excel file to an user having a BadGateway error.

What can I do?

Hi @jha95 ,

Do you want to share your canvas app to external users outside your Org?


Currently, within PowerApps, there is no way to share canvas app with external users outside your org directly, you could only share your app with users within your Org.


As an alternative solution, you could consider add this external users as a Guest user within your Azure Active Directory (AAD), then you could share your canvas app to this Guest account in your AAD.

More details about sharing an canvas with external user as Guest account, please check the following article:

Note: Please make sure your Guest user has owned a proper license to access your shared app, if not, you could consider assign a proper license to the guest user.


Best regards,

Hi @v-xida-msft 

We are looking into sharing Canvas PowerApps  through the solution posted you (i.e. through the use of guest accounts). I consulted the page shared:

It is not exactly clear what the limitations are while sharing apps this way. In section "What connectors support guest access?" the currently supported connectors for guest access are listed. It seems that a lot of connectors are not supported at this moment, including Common Data Services (CDS).


Am I correct to assume that there is no way for a guest user to ineract (=create, read, update) with CDS data in a Canvas app?
