Re: Publish App - Disable or require approvals to publish

The mentioned option in tenant settings (publish content packs and apps to the entire organization) doesn't prevent you from publishing app (it just blocks the ability to publish your app to whole organization... but you can still publish app and share it with specific accounts rather than sharing with everyone)


I see a challenge here for many organizations that want to fully control what is published. Now it can be achieved only partially:


1) We can control workspace creation by disabling workspace creation for the user (to be specific: disabling group creation in Office 365). Then only some adminstrator would be able to create workspaces. Such workspace could also have pre-existing security (defined by administrator) which could not be altered by dashboard creator (dashboard creator would be member with edit permissions, so he can build dashboard but only admin have control on who else can be granted access)


2) However we _cannot_ control app publishing. So if the security in workspace is defined, user is actually still able to publish app to anyone (what would be good is to at least ensure that app publishing is aligned with workspace security). This way organization could have full control on what is published and to whom. And unfortunately now there is still backdoor for user to share dashboard with anyone via app.


I would be very interested to know if second limitation can be somehow solved.
