Change owner of custom connector

Hi

We have a custom connector that's being used in some apps. Now the owner (publisher) of this connector has left the company. 

Now, no one can update the connector if needed. At this moment we can still re-enable the owners account, but that cannot be done in a few months.

Is there any way we can update the owner of this connector? I have seen some PowerShell cmdlets, but they only refer to the sharing permissions, there is no owner role available.

 

I hope someone can help me out

 

regards

Hi  @hsantens :
I am afraid that the owner role of the connector cannot be assigned.

  • At present, you can first give yourself the "Can edit" permission, so that in addition to granting the "Can edit" permission to others, your permissions will be almost the same as the "Owner" (you can share this connection with others)
  • If you have administrator rights, you can use PowerShell to authorize the “Can edit” rights of this connection to yourself and then share it with others.(Do not change owner)

Best Regards,
Bof

Hi

I find myself in the same situation. The owner has left the company and all users with access to the connector is granted read access.

I have administrator rights, but I'm unsure of how to grant the can edit permissions through PowerShell.

Would the cmdlet Set-AdminPowerAppConnectionRoleAssignment be the right tool?

Best regards

The Set-AdminPowerAppConnectionRoleAssignment Powershell command doesn't work.


The error is "Message=The connection with id 'x' of type 'commondataserviceforapps' cannot be shared."

This site described very clearly what the problem is: https://benediktbergmann.eu/2022/02/08/connections-and-connection-references-explained/#deployment

In my opinion this is a nasty problem that should be attended because I want to run all my Flows under an application user and they can be owner of a Flow now but the connection cannot be owned by them so all the Flows are stopped after evert deployment.

 

Any news on this?
