Hi @DLGross ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to know who added a person as the user/owner of a shared app? Or add a people record using a PowerApps app?

 

If you want to know who added a person as the user/owner of a shared app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you want to know who added a people record using a PowerApps app (Auditing App), I think the User() function could achieve your needs.

You could consider take a try to record the current sign user into your data source, when the user submit a new people record into your data source using this app. You could consider take a try to submit your people record using Patch function as below:

Patch(
         'YourDataSource',
          Defaults('YourDataSource'),
         {
           ...
           Submitter: User().FullName,  /* <-- Submitter is a Text type column in your data source, which used to store the user who added a person record through this app*/
           ...
         }
)

More details about Patch function and User function, please check the following article:

Thanks for the response. I am trying to find out when a new user was added to an app as well as who granted them permission. It is very dissapointing to learn that this is not possible. This is a basic requirement for auditing and security and may prevent some of my customers from adopting PowerApps. Is adding this functionality on the roadmap?

Hi @DLGross ,

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Fourm:
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

More details about the feature functionalties would be added within PowerApps Roadmap, please check the following article:
