I need to restore older version of my app. But I am getting following error message:
"Restore failed. 'My App' is locked by Surname Name (email@example.com)"
We use Power BI, Apps and Flow in our company. I for sign in my domain credentials are used. My user ID is firstname.lastname@example.org
But my standard email eddress is email@example.com.
I do not understand why my app is locked by "firstname.lastname@example.org" user as I never used this email for log in and it even does not exist. To be sure I tried to log in as "email@example.com" but I received following error: The user ID you entered does not exist. Please check that you have typed your user ID correctly.
Do you have any idea how come my app is locked by user which was never signed in? And how to fix that?
Its actually the same user. What you are seeing in the error message is the display name for the user (the email address) while the login is the UserPrincipalName (UPN). I suspect you have the current version of the app open in a different window and that is why you can't restore the previous version. Close all the windows where you have the app open and you should be able to restore it.
I do not have Power Apps opened in a different tab, window or browser. Checked a few times. I cleared cache, cookies, I restarted my notebook.
Find screenshot attached. I feel like Power Apps thinks firstname.lastname@example.org is a different user. As I am signed as email@example.com.
If you've had it open recently it could still be locked by you. re-open the current version of the app and explicitly close it. Then try again. The server may have it flagged as open in a session if you just closed a tab.
Ok, that would make sense. I opened the app and then I clicked on File > Close and I cloced the tab then.
The issue persists.
Is there a way how to check or change the flag on server manually? Or is there some cache?
No cache that I'm aware of, and since its Office 365 you don't have access to the server to reset anything. About your only choice would be to open a service ticket for help.
Have you shared the app with anyone else? If not then it has to be your user account that has it locked.
service ticket sounds good. Do yo uhave any idea how to do that?
I found this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/supportforbusiness/productselection
But when selecting Dynamics > Power Apps it forces me to go to https://admin.powerapps.com/environments where I do not see any oprion to create any ticket.
Go to this page: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/support/
Scroll to the very bottom of the screen and click on 'Create Support Ticket'.
Fill in the form that you are presented with to create a support ticket. Not sure if you need to be a global admin to do this, but its possible.
Just to keep you updated with news for this case.
I was contacted by Microsoft byt their response once a week regarding scheduling a call is not effective ://
BUT I found out I can restore version which is a week old. But not a month old. So I feel like currect Power Apps version is not compatible with the old ones.
If this is the case I hope Microsoft will announce release of new version and information what old versions will not be compatible any more. And it could be also visible in the list of old versions for each app.
This will be a conference that you do not want to miss!
Reopen responsibly, monitor intelligently, and protect continuously with solutions for a safer work environment.
