Sharing canvas app from environment bug?

When sharing a canvas app from a CDS environment, you can share it with any user. That user can play the app without having a security role assigned to them by accessing it directly by URL. They do not have the ability to play the app or have access to the environment on make.powerapps.com.

 

Is that desired functionality of sharing a canvas app, or is it a bug? Shouldn't that user need to have a security role that allows them to play canvas apps in that environment?

Re: Sharing canvas app from environment bug?

Hi @bthibeault18 ,

 

This functionality makes sense to me.  When you share an app the user should be able to play it.  However, this doesn't give the user access to the data behind the app and you will find that the Canvas app probably doesn't work properly (if it is connected to CDS data) because the user doesn't have a security role in CDS.

 

Access to make.powerapps.com comes from giving the user the Environment Maker role.

 

I hope this helps
