  • User Name and Password
Add-PowerAppsAccount -Endpoint "prod" -Username "" -Password ""
  • Tenant Id, Client Id and Client Secret
Add-PowerAppsAccount -Endpoint "prod" -TenantID "" -ClientSecret "" `
-ApplicationId ""
  • Tenant Id, Client ID and Certificate Thumbprint 
Add-PowerAppsAccount -Endpoint "prod" -TenantID "" -CertificateThumbprint "" `
-ApplicationId ""

Go to Azure Portal : -> Azure AD -> Users -> note down the Object Id of the user you want to sync

Run the cmdlet in Power Shell

Add-AdminPowerAppsSyncUser -EnvironmentName <Guid> -PrincipalObjectId…
