Manage security roles for a canvas app

I am new to powerapps. I've created a model driven app. When I share it I can click the app name and I get the possibility to manage security roles. See attachement.


I'm looking for the same for my canvas app, but I can't find it. How can I link security roles to a canvas app?


Hello @EllenHeijmans 


For canvas app this work different, if your app  connect to an entity in a Common Data Service database. When you share such an app, the sharing panel prompts you to manage security for that entity.


For a shared app to function as you expect, you must also manage permissions for the data source or sources on which the app is based, hope this document can help you:


I hope this can help you!
