Sharing PowerApps to External Users

Hi all!

 

I'm currently building apps for Company A who has their own SharePoint environment and PowerApps licenses.

 

We plan to share the apps with Company B users, who have SharePoint but do not have PowerApps licenses. If Company B were to acquire licenses, would their users then be able to use the apps created by Company A? Assume that both companies get the same type of PowerApps licenses.

 

Thank you!!

Re: Sharing PowerApps to External Users

Hi @LuisTalavera,

 

Thanks for the reply! I had some follow up questions.

 

In the video, they assign the external users licenses that are owned internally.

 

If the external user has a license that already includes a licesnse to PowerApps (like Office 365 Business Essentials),  would that allow them to use the PowerApp or does the license have to be from the environment the app is in?

Hi @LeonSig 

 

from my point of view, if the user has office 365 and in his tenant he already has a license that he needs to use powerapps, he will take that license at the time of authentication and will be able to use the functionalities he needs, however, in case Users do not have office365 or do not have the necessary license, you should assign the license you require on your portal.

Re: Sharing PowerApps to External Users

Hi @LeonSig ,

Currently, within PowerApps, there is no direct way to share an app to external users outside your Org (There is no direct way to share an app from one tenant to another one).

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider add these users from Company B as Guest users within Company A Azure Active Direcroty tenant. Then you could share app from Company A tenant to these Guest users (from Company B).

 

More details about sharing an app with Guest users, please check the following article:

Hi Kris (@v-xida-msft),

 

Thanks for the response!

 

EDIT: The situation did change a bit, Company B does have licenses but they are PowerApps for US Government

 

In my case, the guest user has the PowerApps for US Government Office 365 license that Company B provides them. Do licenses carry over from one Company to another? And in this case, is the US Government version of PowerApps compatible with the regular one?
