In Google Workspace, giving someone access to AppSheet is necessary for users to open a deployed AppSheet app. I was expecting that giving someone access to AppSheet within Workspace would give those users the ability to CREATE AppSheet apps. Then, those deployed apps could be shared with other Workspace USERS, even though they didn’t have access to CREATE apps. However, we learned that both CREATORS and USERS both have to have full access to AppSheet.
The current security model forces us to give too many people the ability to create custom applications. This is leading to “shadow IT” and application sprawl. We’ve even had someone develop an app that already existed within our ERP system and almost had an entire region using it. We would like to be able to identify people we trust to build corporate apps and make sure they are the only ones with access to AppSheet.
