Share apps with a Office365 Group

Hi,

 

Ive started a new project and i wish to add each new microsoft user to a Office365 group and then share the group with powerapps (to save a considerable amount of time, rather than put each user in manually and add each user when then start the job) 

 

Is this possible yet? ive tried and my group does not show with the share option of powerapps?

Hi @shaneOZ ,

Do you want to share a PowerApps app to a Office 365 Group?

 

If you want to share a PowerApps app to a Office 365 Group, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Currently, within PowerApps, we could only share an app with individual users or security Groups in your Azure Active Directory. Please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/share-app#share-an-app

 

On your side, you could consider create a security Group, add your new Microsoft users into this security group, then you could share your app to this security group.

Had the same question... and must say it's a shame one can't Share apps with group.

Have a few Apps for a Sharepoint page and all who want access to that page is put in the groups Visitors group, which only has access to that page and the sharepoint lists that the app uses.

Would have been so much easier if I could have added the same group in the App sharing... so that when someone was added to the visitors group automatic got access to both the page, sources and the app.

This is no longer true and it IS possible to "share" PApps with an Office365/Microsoft365 group AS LONG AS THE O365 GROUP HAS BEEN SECURITY-ENABLED...which is NOT the default for O365 groups.  See this Sharing Flow or Power App with O365 M365 group - InspiriBytes

or the updated MSFT docs here: Share a canvas app - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs

 

Furthermore, it seems that if you create the M365 group using the AzureAD Groups blade in the Azure portal INSTEAD of creating the M365 group one of the other ways (e.g. in Outlook, Teams), it IS security-enabled and you do NOT need to do the PowerShell tweak to the group.
