Necessity of adding users to Power Apps environment

I have created a canvas app backed by SharePoint list in a private environment.

I want users to access the app via URL but do I need to add all the users to the environment? Or can they use the app outside the environment? Thanks.

Hi @chickennanban ,


You will have to grant an access to user. There is no way to access a SharePoint list without giving the access.

See info from community support about the external user access.

Thanks @Gochix for your answer.

Yes I need to give users access to SharePoint list, but do I necessarily have to add them in Power Apps environment which the app is deployed to?

Hi @chickennanban ,


I misunderstood the question.

I have no answer on that but I'm sure you can find your answer in here:
