Specify the Administrators and Users Who Can Install and Manage Apps for Outlook

Exchange Online
 

You can specify which administrators in your organization have permissions to install and manage apps for Outlook. You can also specify which users in your organization have permission to install and manage apps for their own use.

There are four built-in management roles that you use to assign these permissions to individual users or security groups.

Administrative roles

  • Org Marketplace Apps   Enables an administrator to install and manage apps that are available from the Office Store for their organization.
  • Org Custom Apps   Enables an administrator to install and manage custom apps for their organization.

User roles

  • My Marketplace Apps   Enables a user to install and manage Office Store apps for their own use.
  • My Custom Apps   Enables a user to install and manage custom apps for their own use.

For information about each of these roles, see Org Marketplace Apps Role, Org Custom Apps Role, My Marketplace Apps Role, and My Custom Apps Role.

For information about apps for Outlook, see Apps for Outlook.

  • Estimated time to complete: 5 minutes.
  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Role assignments" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.
  • Access to the Office Store isn’t supported for mailboxes or organizations in specific regions. If you don’t see Add from the Office Store as an option in the Exchange admin center under Organization > Apps > Add Icon, you may be able to install an App for Outlook from a URL or file location. For more information, contact your service provider.
  • For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard Shortcuts in the Exchange Admin Center.
