Share an app with a group

Hi I am trying to share an App with AD security group. But when I type the name of the group, I get an error that the group does not exists. My on premises AD is synced with O365. 

I am able to add individual users but not the group.


Please let me know if you have an idea why.

I too am unable to share an app with either an AD security group, or an office 365 group. This is extremely disappointing as I'd like to be able to enable push notifications from SharePoint > Flow > PowerApps targeting an O365 group who are using the app.

I don't think this is solved, it still appears to be an issue. No matter which SharePoint group I type, I get this message and can only add individual staff.... which obviously is not possible to do or maintain! Can you assist?

Agreed. We are not able to share apps with groups yet, something doesn't seem right.

Hey all




Any update on this?

I have the same problem with a Flow that I want to share with a group so that the maintenance for the Flow is much easier than add an user manually everytime someone needs access to it.



Kind regards

Are you still experiencing this issue? I'm trying to share an app with an Office 365 Group (which is mail enabled & visible in the Gobal Addressbook) and it doesn't work. I get the same error stating it's not in our organisations directory. Desperately need a fix to this issue as it's making sharing PowerApps a complete nightmare! 

Hi @Anonymous,

i use Security groups (which can be recognized by PowerApps portal) to share my apps.

Yeah, that works for us too....but isn't the point that an O365 Group is effectively a security group and should therefore be usable to share apps to groups of users? It baffles me that this isn't a working feature yet??

How do I create a group in powerapps to share my app. I read about sharing an app within group here:

Im getting the same error as yours. Had any luck yet?

@Anonymous I think sharing an app only works with security groups,dsitribuition groups. Are you trying to share it a SharePoint group ?
