In this minor release, we added a couple of new commands and enhancements to the existing functionality. Check out some of the awesome stuff added and be sure to try them out.
We’ve introduced a new command that allows you to list all permissions of a Power App as well as an additional command to modify the app owner. Check out the details below:
To lists all permissions of a Power App, simply run:
m365 pa app permission list --appName bc9f0a7e-53df-46af-b669-5888bb2f63d0
You may also filter the results to only a given role by doing:
m365 pa app permission list --appName bc9f0a7e-53df-46af-b669-5888bb2f63d0 --roleName CanEdit
In order to set a new owner for a Power App and remove the previous owner, all you need to do is:
m365 pa app owner set --environmentName Default-716eb9fb-bf79-4be9-b0c7-900824fcbe25 --appName 7ab97923-4a4d-4467-b030-12071d2b810b --userName email@example.com

Not so long ago we introduced Planner Roster commands and now we refactored the already existing commands to add that support there as well. In this minor release, we modified the planner bucket commands with the ability to reference Planner Rosters. Check out the related issue to find out more.
In this minor release, we continue our work on refactoring the code base to embrace the asynchronous programming model using async/await. All this would not have been possible without our awesome contributors and their dedication to CLI for Microsoft 365. Just have a look at the list to get a feeling of the amount of work already done and what is left.
We’ve also taken the first steps to refactor our codebase to centralize the shared code in util functions. This refactor will bring a performance boost to the tool as well as allows easier integration and testing. Check out the related issue to go over the details.
