Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.Administration.PowerShell

Install-Module -Name Microsoft.PowerApps.PowerShell -AllowClobber

Step 3

You now need to find two pieces of information from your Tennant, you will need the Environment Name GUID And the App Name GUID

To do this go to your apps screen in PowerApps and click the ‘More Commands’ (3 dots) and choose details.

Here you will see the App GUID, note this down.

To find the Environment ID, click the ‘Settings’ cog icon, and choose Session Details

Note this down.
