Status of sharing canvas apps with external users

 

I know this question has been asked numerous times in the past (when the answer was still “There are plans to do so”).

 

Last week I spoke with Microsoft tech support who said it was possible and all I needed to do was sign up for a trial subscription to Portals (I currently have PA Plan 1). I have since signed up but don’t see any way to share an actual app.

 

Anyone out there have any details?

Yes, you can not use simple authentication (Username/Password without AAD account) in Model-driven apps & Canvas as in PowerApps portals.

I don't really understand what you cant to do, but for sharing Apps with external users, you can check that https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/share-canvas-apps-with-guests-in-your-organization/

Thanks abeldjilali. 

 

It has been a bit confusing in speaking directly with Microsoft support. I was under the impression that canvas/model PowerApps sharing was part of the PowerApps Portal sharing platform. This is also what Microsoft Tech Support led me to believe.

 

I now understand it is  it's own program and though you can now share with external users, your must assign them a license to do so. I was hoping it would have been like Portals where the user could sign up with their own credentails without the need to have a microsft, etc. account.

 

Thanks again.
