Hi @badrharfoush,

Yes - for the Service, settings can be applied in the tenant by an admin to only allow certified visuals from AppSource.

For Desktop, changes need to be made to group policy. The information is on the same page as ther above link but is easy to miss, so it's this section that you'll need to ensure admins work with:


It's also worth mentioning that the above link talks about organizational visuals - if you want to allow certain uncertified visuals that have been vetted but keep the certification policies for users adding visuals themselves, then this can be a way to manage that scenario also.
