Sharing an app with users who do not have OneDrive for Business Licences

Hi everyone,


I've built a PowerApp, which gets some information from an Excel file in Onedrive for Business and also writes data back to it. The Onedrive folder is shared public, as well as every file inside of it. Everything works fine for users who have a licence for PowerApps and an full Office 365 account with OneDrive for Business.

However, when someone without licence for OneDrive for Business tries to open the app and sign in, an error 'failed to sign in' for the OneDrive connector appears.

Is it possible to access my app for users without OneDrive for Business licence, only licence for PowerApps? Maybe some share options in Onedrive? 

Or any other datastore, Sharepoint with external permissions for example?


Thank you in advance

Re: Sharing an app with users who do not have OneDrive for Business Licences

Hi @boca,


I'm afraid that both cannot be achieved in PowerApps so far. External users of SharePoint/OneDrive for Business cannot access and manage data in PowerApps. You could vote and coment this idea at “PowerApps Ideas”:
