Cannot share Custom Connectors or Connections

Hi all,
Since last week we have problems with sharing connections and custom connectors. See images for details.
For Custom Connectors:
I'm the owner/maker of the Custom Connector and can add users but the save button is not available.

Many thanks.

Chears Marcel

Update : users can login to the connector if the app is shared with them. But the question is still there why I cannot share the connector with users.
Not applicable

@marcelvos @JJarmuzek Any solution to this? Having the same issue, unable to share connector/connection with users when the connector was built inside a solution.

Has anyone found a solution for this?

I had this problem and here is a fresh solution to it. Had problems with sharing the actual connection though, it did not recognize me as an owner for some reason but I found a workaround for that below:

1. Follow video

2. Attempt to share connection to someone/grp, save your user GUID.

3. Create instant flow with these steps (actually I did not need Get Custom Connectors as Admin) on an admin account in the environment:



From the out data of "Get connections as admin", CTRL+F your connection name and in $connection variable, you can find apiId: "/providers/microsoft.powerapps/apis/_your custom connector ID_"

Copy last ID which is your Connector Name for last step in flow. 

Environment name is the one when you browse name_ so copy last bit there. 


4. Fill in CanEdit in put Role Name and put Principal Object ID, fill in your user GUID that wants to be able to share connection. 


5. Run flow.


You now should be able to share the connection without errors. Worked for me atleast!

@Anonymous , No. we add the connectors now in a different solution. This is working fine for us.
