When using Microsoft Power Apps and connecting to an external source, such as SharePoint, a database, or other connection, users will be prompted to allow the connections the first time they load the app.

Fortunately, we can turn this off! This is what worked for me. I ran this from the Windows PowerShell ISE run as administrator.

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Force
dir . | Unblock-File
Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.Administration.PowerShell
Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell -AllowClobber
Import-Module Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.Powershell -Verbose
Connect-SPOService -Url https://<<your tenant>>
Set-AdminPowerAppApisToBypassConsent -AppName <<GUID>>
  1. Set the Execution Policy to allow us to run the PowerShell. Accept the prompts.
  2. Install the Power Apps modules. Accept the prompts.
  3. Import the SharePoint PowerShell module.
  4. Connect to the tenant admin site. You'll be prompted to authenticate.
  5. Set-AdminPowerAppAPIsToBypassConsent is the command that applies the change. Pass in the AppName (this is the App ID that can be found on the App Details page)
  6. I was prompted for the environment name, which can be found by running Get-AdminPowerAppEnvironment, and it will return the default environment name. Copy the value to be used for the Environment parameter when prompted.
