Model driven apps visible to all users

Our default environment users see a variety of other owners Model driven apps under their Your Apps/All Apps view, although they seem unable to Play them.

I created one myself which also shows up. Canvas apps need to be specifically shared. How do I hide these, such that a user who has never created an app or had one shared sees a blank list?

Thanks

Hi @BillYoung-arm ,

The reason why you met this problem is that you create the apps in default environment.

A single default environment is automatically created by PowerApps for each tenant and shared by all users in that tenant.

Whenever a new user signs up for PowerApps, they are automatically added to the Maker role of the default environment. 

To sum up, default environment is a public space and everyone in your tenant could view all apps by default in this environment.

 

So to solve this problem, I suggest you create a new environment that only belongs to you.

Then, only give the people that you want the permission of viewing your apps.

Here's a doc about environment for your reference:

Thanks for the reply 

I have created Dev, Test and Production environments

"everyone in your tenant could view all apps by default in this environment" seems only to apply to Model-driven apps, not Canvas apps, which is why we have multiple OrgBrowsers showing up

Hi @BillYoung-arm ,

Thanks again Phoebe

 

I was planning to give it a few days in the hope that someone might suggest a way of hiding the default canvas apps from all our users, as I think it confuses matters.

 

Can you confirm my understanding that:

"everyone in your tenant could view all apps by default in this environment" only applies to Model-driven apps?

 

Otherwise, I'm happy to mark this as answered accordingly
