Wrap multiple canvas apps together

It is possible to combine multiple canvas apps into one mobile app package. Mobile app packages require a home application known as the primary app. The app is the gateway to all other canvas apps within the package of mobile apps, which are known secondary apps.

Secondary apps are optional. If you only wrap an app on canvas, that app is still categorized as the primary app. However, the mobile app package does not contain any other apps.

The image below demonstrates that a primary application can include links to several additional apps. The Launch () feature can control the transfer of the primary and secondary apps in the mobile app can be controlled by the Launch() feature.

Understand wrap terminology

The wrap comprises multiple components that span Power Apps, App Center, and other third-party platforms, such as iOS and Android. Therefore, it is essential to know the components when working with wrap capabilities within Power Apps.

App Center API token

App Center lets you create user tokens as well as app tokens. Wrap requires app tokens, which allow all access to the application. Power Apps uses this token to allow it to connect and communicate with the app and the app’s location in the App Center.

The following best practices to follow when using an API token:

  • You can use a different token at each center of the app.
  • Do not reuse tokens used to wrap functionality in any other way.
  • Use the user token for wrapping. Make use of the app token.

App Center container

Containers inside App Center to store developed packages for mobile app distribution. The types of outputs you can build are based on your chosen platform.
