Change App Owner

A consulant created a PowerApp and we would like to change the Owner to another account.I have seen some old answers stating that we would have to open a support ticket which I find difficult to believe. Is this really true?

 

How can we do this?

Hello,

 

I believe you can either use the PowerShell cmdlets to re-assign the owner

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/administrator/powerapps-powershell

 

Or, I downloaded the Connector Browser Tool and uploaded it into my environment and that also lets you execute the PowerApps Admin connector functions.

I've attached a picture of how the Set Owner looks in the Connector Browser.

The easiest way to change an app's owner is to create a 1-step flow and use the Power Apps For Admins connector Set App Owner action.  In the article below will it show you how to find the unique identifiers for the environment, app and new owner for use in the flow:

Yes, it is true.

 

Currently there is no Owner switch option in the UI for PowerApps App.

As it has been talked in the thread below:

Changing Ownership of Powerapps app

 

You may consider vote up the idea below;

Allow the Change of Ownership of the Application

 

A possible workaround that may work in your situation is:

Export the App from the original owner, then import the App to the planned owner.

Packaging

I just learned about the Set App Owner action in the PowerApps for Admin connector, this looks like it should do what I need, but I cannot get it to work.

Thanks, I ended up using PowerShell,  I hope they change the new owner parameter to accept a UPN instead of a GUID.

 

Parameters should never use obscure ID values like that.

Just to add on top of that. I've added the sample images of PowerShell script that was used to change the owner.

1. Use Get-AdminPowerAppRoleAssignment  to know the AppName and EnvrionmentName (it's a guid, not the display name).

2. Set-AdminPowerAppOwner needs to be used to change the owner. In the below command, I have set the current logged in user as the owner. But you can just use, Set-AdminPowerAppOwner and key in the AppName, EnvironmentName and UserId as highlighted in step 1.image.png

 

I am not able to assign AD Group as PowerApp Owner.. However i am able to assign another User. Is this a limitation of Powerapp??

I know this didn't exist when this question was originally asked, but the Power Platform Center of Excellence provides another excellent way to change flow and app owners. It also helps in finding orphaned apps and flows, those whose owners have left the organization.
