Limit access and apply security on PowerApps

Hi All,

 

Can you advise how best to restrict access to built PowerApps, please? i.e. I might only want to allow a specific group of people to raise forms and processes.

 

Kind Regards,

Dayna

Hello @DaynaLitherland

 

Ideally, all the security is enforced on the backend. If you're looking for a way to enable certain functionality for certain users though then you can rely on a fact that every user who runs the PowerApps application is successfully authenticated. For example, let's assume that you want only managers to be able to create forms and processes. To implement that, you can create a list of manager emails in a list (or a table) on the server and then "validate" the email of the authenticated user against that list on application start (see "User().Email" function for example). 

Hope that helps.
