Can we change name of the canvas app publisher

Hi,

 

I mistakenly create canvas app outside my solution whereby my solution has it own publisher name (the prefix in front of object's name). And this is actually a canvas app created by Model-driven, not sure it is matters or not, but anyway I've done many things in this canvas app, is there a way to change the publisher name (the prefix) so that it will be same as the publisher used in my solution ?

 

Kindly advice.

Thanks

Hi @Axal 

We can change the publisher name for a solution but for any existing objects/components, you created with the previous publisher the prefix can't be changed/renamed. 

 

To change the publisher for a solution, we have to use legacy (Classic)

  • In the PowerApps, Select the correct environment
  • Click Solutions on the left navigation
  • Click "Switch to classic" on the menu bar in the center of the screen
  • It opens the solutions window
  • Select a solution and open it
  • The solution will open it on New pop up window
  • Click "Information"
  • Change the publisher

Note: We have to delete the components and recreate them if the prefix is needed to change it.
