Change App Owner

A consulant created a PowerApp and we would like to change the Owner to another account.I have seen some old answers stating that we would have to open a support ticket which I find difficult to believe. Is this really true?

 

How can we do this?

Re: Change App Owner

Hello,

 

I believe you can either use the PowerShell cmdlets to re-assign the owner

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/administrator/powerapps-powershell

 

Or, I downloaded the Connector Browser Tool and uploaded it into my environment and that also lets you execute the PowerApps Admin connector functions.

I've attached a picture of how the Set Owner looks in the Connector Browser.

Re: Change App Owner

Yes, it is true.

 

Currently there is no Owner switch option in the UI for PowerApps App.

As it has been talked in the thread below:

Changing Ownership of Powerapps app

 

You may consider vote up the idea below;

Allow the Change of Ownership of the Application

 

A possible workaround that may work in your situation is:

Export the App from the original owner, then import the App to the planned owner.

Packaging

Re: Change App Owner

I just learned about the Set App Owner action in the PowerApps for Admin connector, this looks like it should do what I need, but I cannot get it to work.

Re: Change App Owner

Thanks, I ended up using PowerShell,  I hope they change the new owner parameter to accept a UPN instead of a GUID.

 

Parameters should never use obscure ID values like that.

Re: Change App Owner

Just to add on top of that. I've added the sample images of PowerShell script that was used to change the owner.

1. Use Get-AdminPowerAppRoleAssignment  to know the AppName and EnvrionmentName (it's a guid, not the display name).

2. Set-AdminPowerAppOwner needs to be used to change the owner. In the below command, I have set the current logged in user as the owner. But you can just use, Set-AdminPowerAppOwner and key in the AppName, EnvironmentName and UserId as highlighted in step 1.image.png
