Getting current apps GUID ID within the app

Is it possible to get current PowerApps application GUID/ID within the PowerApps?

I need to send the email with the link to this app, and static value works but when migrating into another environment, we need to change manually in multiple places. So, getting the app id dynamically would be perfect.

 

Thanks,

Nabin

Re: Getting current apps GUID ID within the app

@pNabin 

Yes.  The way I go about it, you need the PowerAppsforAdmins connector to do it.  

Then, to test, throw in a label and set the Text property to:

LookUp(PowerAppsforAdmins.GetAdminApps(
     LookUp(PowerplatformforAdmins.GetAdminEnvironment().value, properties.creationType="DefaultTenant").name
     ).value, properties.displayName="yourAppName").name

This, of course, assumes the DefaultTenant environment, but you can adjust as needed.

End result in your test label...the GUID of the app you are looking for.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thank you @RandyHayes
Isn't there anyway without using the admin connector?

Hmmm, none that I am aware of.  But, I haven't researched much on it.  Perhaps others might chime in on it.

Re: Getting current apps GUID ID within the app

I am not aware of a better option for getting the App Id than what @RandyHayes suggest. however, you may be able to simplify the updating process when moving the app by creating a global variable in the OnStart property and manually set the App Id. Then where ever you use the App Id in your app would use the global variable. When you move the app to a new environment then you would just need to update the global variable in the OnStart and you are done.
