How to change the name of app owner - I know PowerShell cmdlet - it gives error

How to change the name of app owner - I know PowerShell cmdlet - it gives error. So please don't provide a link to the Page where all cmdlets are listed. 


I use this cmdlet interactively.


It asks for AppName, EnvironmentName and AppOwner.

What should I supply? AppName has space - do I put into double quotes? same with EnvironmentName.

Or Do enter AppID and Environment UniqueID? Whar should be entered for AppOwner? O365 Login ID? Display name ? Anyone who has tried this, please provide the above details. I will really appreciate it.

You need to supply the relevant names, which to most people look more like IDs.


You get the EnvironmentName from the list of the following command:


You get the PowerApp Name from the following command:


What you are probably refering to as the AppName is actually the DisplayName.

You get the user id through a call to AzureAD.

$user = Get-AzureADUser -searchstring [e-mail-address]

Then you can call the command you know:

Set-AdminPowerAppOwner -AppName [AppName] -EnvironmentName [EnvironmentName] -Owner $user.ObjectId

[AppName] and [EnvironmentName] should look something like xxxxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx


Hope this helps
