PowerApps permissions

It would make sense to be able to grant permissions of a PowerApp to a group.  For instance, I'm working on a proof of concept to see how viable it is to replace fillable PDF's with powerapps that store the entries to a Sharepoint list.  Clearly, you'd want to be able to assign rights to the PowerApp to the same group that has access to the Sharepoint site and not worry about managing permissions in two different places.  Why has this not been addressed?

I am also very interested in this function! Today I need to give SharePoint and PowerApps permission to my users separately.

Hello,

 

you can grant access to your PowerApps via security groups. You can also use these security groups to grant access to your SharePoint site.

If I got your question right, this should solve your problem.

I'd also be interested in this feature; I manage several Sharepoint sites that control access/security rights through user groups for several offices (500 base users not counting support staff, project teams, and external stakeholders). Doing this on the sites is already a giant pain point with onboarding and offboarding, but having to replicate it in PowerApps is a nightmare. I've had to nerf a lot of features that would improve many internal workflows just because I can't physically add/remove that many people as a part of my daily duties. Nor do I have the sheer force of will to try to replicate this sort of functionality through traditional programming in Visual Studio.

@aebischoff Again, you can set up Security Groups in Azure AD or in Office 365 Admin Center. 

Then you can simply grant the Security Group access to your SharePoint Sites (or even encapsulate them in SharePoint groups) and to your PowerApp.

 

Does this not solve your issue?

 

@shanerigsby If you first set up your SharePoint list, you can also click "New Element" and in the right-hand pop up, you can then select the [...] symbol and after that "Edit in PowerApps". This will generate a new formular for your list, which is then instantly linked to your SharePoint list. If it is only this feature, you are looking for.

@simb55, Unfortunately it doesn't. A separate part of my organization handles security group access in Azure AD and my access to it is extremely limited in AD (I can lookup and view individual accounts and reset passwords, but that's it).
