Direct URL link to a PowerApp in another tenant

Hi,

 

I am giving users a link to a PowerApp on our O365  tenant.  This link works fine for those who are logged into our tenant in their browser.

 

However, for users that are logged into another O365 tenant in their browser the link results in "Sorry, we didn't find that app.".

 

One option is that I ask the users to open an InPrivate or Incognito browser session in which case they would be forced to sign in however this isn't a good user experience. 

 

Best scenario is that the user is given a URL to the PowerApp which specifies the tenant and they are prompted to sign in using the username and password provided to them in our tenant.

 

Is anyone able to advise on the URL format to achieve this behaviour?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @sips1 

 

I don't think you can do what you are asking - the browser is the issue not the link/App.

The browser has the credentials for login.microsoftonline.com cached (unless in incognito as you said), so even if you could find a way to direct link to it, the cached credentials (their O365 tenant) would not be able to access resources in your tenant, so it would just show a different error (likely "you don't have access to this resource via User@thisdomain.com").

 

Links to Apps now include tenantID in their parameters, have you tested using these newer links?

Hi @iAm_ManCat , @sips1 ,

Curious, so just confirmed:

Launch() from one tenant to another with tenantid in URL prompts for login to destination tenant and plays the app.  Fairly seamless actually.

Kind regards,

Thanks @RusselThomas - I had a feeling the new links which included tenantID would do that, but I didn't have time to test earlier 😄
