How to deactivate "Power Apps (Preview)" in Teams

I don't want that the users in my tenant create Apps directly in Teams. (Projekt Oaktdale).

But, it should be possible to add already created standalone Canvas Apps in a Teams Tab.



I followed this description and I found this:

Whats the difference between this both?

Hi @max81 ,


From what I could gather, the first App that you see there is the main app that you use to setup PowerApps in teams.

Let me give you an example:


As you can see the block on the right refers to the first one that you have i.e. any PowerApps published by Microsoft will be blocked.


The second entry in your case refers to apps shared by other that are also first party apps.

This will block any attempts of Apps developed by Microsoft and shared between users to be used within Teams.


Hope this helps! 🙂


Best regards,

I just noticed that it is not enough to blocked the Power Apps app in Teams to stop your users from creating Project Oakdale environments. The apps Inspection, Employee Ideas and Issue Reporting (all published by Microsoft) are all creating such an environment if you add them to a team. We had five new environments in our tenant this morning even if the Power Apps app was blocked. 😠

@FilipeRelvas : Thanks for your answer. I could not test it, because we deactivated both Power Apps things in Teams.

As far as we don't really know how it works, what the benefits are and how all the API requests are handled (or how many we are already using today), we don't allow uses to "play around".


I'm really unsatisfied how Microsoft handles its customers here...


@Plinderoth : 😱😠😭
