Sharing the app inside the app

Hi there. I was wondering if this is possible?


I have several users in my app. I am the app owner and I would like to continue being the app owner. But also I want an user to be something like the app administrator. This mean that user can add other users or remove current users if this is needed.


Any way do accomplish this?


thanks in advance.

Co-Owner. They won't be able to remove you as the Owner, but they can share the app. I am unsure if they can remove users the app was already shared with before. I don't know if you like this one though because they can edit the app as well.

Hey, thank you very much for your prompt response. Let's say this user is a regular user NO Co-Owner. Is there any way that he can add other users or remove other users without having to call me to do this?


Something like a roll or user is some privileges ? 



You can try like this:


1. Select environment from 





Sorry, the default environment does not support this by the way at all unless it has a Dataverse database created in it first - assuming you can try and do that by pressing "Add database" after going in Default environment - after that you can try it and see if it works after that.


I can confirm for me it worked if I made sure it has a Database first though - so you can try on Default environment.


2a. Security Roles




2b. New Role




3. Try and change this stuff here and play with it. Especially "Share" privilege.



I am unsure the above will work. It is something you can try and see if it might work.


I do not know for sure if the above will even work at all even if you set it up correctly though. As I am unsure that this can be applied to the actual sharing of Canvas App itself.


I do not know of any other potential way.
