Publish Canvas Power App to App Source, which uses Custom Connector

We are working on a Canvas App which is simply an admin dashboard that allows performing bulk operations such as bulk assigning roles, teams to users, etc.

We are using a custom connector with this app, which consumes dynamics CRM rest API. When uploading the swagger JSON to create a custom connector in Power Apps, we have to provide, Client Id and Client Secret (AD for authentication) and resource URL (CRM instance URL).

Everything is working pretty smoothly with this setup. Now consider we are publishing this app publically on app source. Now when someone chooses to install our app from the app source, how will things work for them? would they be asked to provide the above-mentioned detail required by the custom connector?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

So when the users load the application you shared, it will appear to them a window where they can sign in to the connections similar to this:

When clicking Sign in, it will prompt you to chose the authentication type:

There is another community post where this is explained in more detail and you can reference it here:  https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/How-exactly-does-sharing-an-app-with-connectors-work/td-p/175748

 

 

So in short, when Sharing an app when the new users load the application for the first time they will be prompted to sign in to the required connections to use it properly.

 

 

Hop this helped you in any way!

 

Regards,

Ricardo
