Permission needed to add a power app to teams


I have an app developed in Powerapps that when I add to teams it gives me an error message that permission is needed.  I have administration rights and have put others there without issue.  I can't see where I would need to give/add permission anywhere.

Here is the screen shot of my teams apps and the error message when adding.

@Himanshu_90677I looked at that, I don't have the two sections as posted here only built with power platform section. office 365 desktop version I'm using. I'm operating as the owner, so I can see no reason why I need permission to add to another O365 programme.

Same here. All of sudden. Even with roles of admin and app owner. Used to work before, only found out when new employees started using the app

Hi all

I asked Microsoft support and this worked for me


> Go to Teams admin center: Microsoft Teams admin center
> Go to Setup policies > Global




In Global, make sure we have the “Upload custom apps” turned on, this used to be called side load app I believe.


Turn on the upload custom apps.  It may take a bit to turn on (i had to wait until the next day before it worked)

This worked for me! Thanks champ!!!
