App users being asked for onedrive/AzureBLob Connections



   I just developed my first PowerApp and shared it we a few teammates.

   Whenever the user opens the app on the phone they are being asked to connect to the AzureBlob.

   Why is this happening? how do I sharethe app with the user not having to provide the AzureBlob credentials?

   Am I missing something?

Hi Sravan,


I created an App which was connected to OneDrive using my PowerApps account1, then I shared it with my PowerApps account2. On the Phone, I signed in PowerApps with my account2, just as you said, I was asked to provide the credential again. Then I provided my OneDrive credential, the shared App opened. And once the credential was provided, as long as the connection with OneDrive was not deleted, the next time I opened the shared App, the shared App can be opened without providing credential again. So credentials for a shared App are needed in the first time your users open it.


And also, if your user already has a connection with OneDrive (for example) in his PowerApps, when he opens the App (which is connecting to OneDrive) you shared with him, he would not need to provide credential but just select the “Allow” can open the App.

So, if the user I share with, does not have an AzureBlob account .He can still say allow? 

I just checked. The user is being asked to "signin in" and the "allow" button is disabled. 


I realized I gave the user "can edit" permission and may be thats why its asking for credentials. 

I gave the user "can use" permission only and the app still asks for the AzureBlob credentials.   


There is no way the user can aces that app and no point in sharing at this point.

To get your shared app work, you have to share both access to the app itself and the data source. Keep in mind that PowerApps is meant for Business apps so that people using the apps must have access to the apps and the data sources.
