App Owner Name - set to Service Account

How can we change the name of the app owner when it is moved from Dev to Prod? My client does not want the persons name shown as the app owner.

Re: App Owner Name - set to Service Account

You can use the PowerApps PowerShell to change the app owner name. It would look something like this but you would need to replace the parameters in single quotes with the actual values.

 

Set-AdminPowerAppOwner -AppName 'App ID' -EnvironmentName 'Default-SomeGuid' -AppOwner 'AAD Object Id'

Re: App Owner Name - set to Service Account

Hi @DLGross ,

Do you want to change the Owner of canvas app when importing it from Dev to Prod Environment?

 

If you want to change the Owner of canvas app when importing it from Dev to Prod Environment, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Actually, the Owner of app when importing it from Dev to Prod Environment is based on the sign in account of the target environment (Prod Env).

 

If you want to change the Owner of a canvas app, I think the PowerApps PowerShell cmdlet -- Set-AdminPowerAppOwner could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:5.JPG

The PowerShell cmdlet as below:

 Set-AdminPowerAppOwner -AppName '526db76e-6ff8-4399-ba4e-df5bb897308b' -EnvironmentName 'Default-9e51064f-f6a5-41a2-89a9-9785a9d6c706' -AppOwner 'daf3bbc5-xxxx-4339-xxxx-50f51f1b4664'

More details about PowerApps PowerShell cmdlets, please check the following article:
