How to Bypass PowerApps consent
When a user starts / opens a PowerApps application for the first time, it asks the user to consent / allow few connectors to which are used in the application. This is because PowerApps applications runs with logged users credential. This connection prompt can be very annoying for end users. However there is a very quick and effective way to bypass this PowerApps consent using PowerShell command. The command which we will be using to bypass this consent is
- PowerApps module for PowerShell
- A Global admin account to run the PowerShell command
- Your App Id and Tenant Id(where the app is deployed)
Steps to Bypass PowerApps consent
- First make sure if you have the PowerShell module for PowerApps
To check if a PowerShell module exists, open PowerShell (as an admin) and run the following command
Get-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.Administration.PowerShell -ListAvailable -All
If the returned result is empty or unavailable then you have to install the module. Check below steps to install the module if you do not have it already.
- If you do not have the module already, then run the below command to install the module in your PC / Server
Install-Module –Name Microsoft.PowerApps.Administration.PowerShell
Install-Module –Name Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell –AllowClobber
- Once you have the modules installed run the following command with your app id and tenant id
Set-AdminPowerAppApisToBypassConsent -EnvironmentName <environment id> -AppName <app id>
If you are not sure how to get your app id and tenant id then follow the below simple trick.
Navigate to your PowerApps home page and open the app details for which you want to bypass consent. Next copy the web link from the details page.
The web link should look like below and it should have at least two parameters the app id and tenand id. I have marked both in the below picture, 1 – app id and 2 – tenant id
After you successfully run the command, the bypass consent flag will be successfully set for the app. And the users will no longer require to consent for the apps for which SSO (single sign-on) is available.
