Remove access from Default environment and all apps and flows

Hello Power Apps Community,

I have a question please, which I hope you can help with.

In our Default environment all our users have access to this.

Let's say I have a user called John and I want to deny him access into the Default environment and all the apps and flows too (personal and shared).

I checked in the Power Platform Admin Centre, selected the Default environment, found John's user record and removed two security roles he had:  "Common Data Service User"; "Environment Maker". 

Yet, when John goes to https://make.powerapps.com/ he still has access and can create Flows and edit Flows. 

Is this more to do with the Office 365 E5 license, rather than the access to the environment?

How do I completely stop John from doing anything in the Default environment, but I don't want to remove his license.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much,

Garry

Re: Remove access from Default environment and all apps and flows

There is no way to remove someone's access to the default environment other than removing their license to Power Apps.  MS uses Power Apps and Power Automate for things like custom forms and workflows in SharePoint online.  So all user's are granted access to the default environment and that can't be changed.  The best you can do is audit John's access to the default environment using the Security and Compliance center.  There you can setup alerts that will fire for various activities, like John creating and sharing an app.

In addition to @Pstork1 excellent suggestion you should also check out the cow starter kit. It has some excellent tools to audit app creation and be alerted if someone creates an app in a certain environment. 

 

You can also further restrict your default app environment by restricting connectors in the default environment
