In which cases the application's appOwnerOrganizationId will be "Microsoft Accounts" (9188040d-6c67-4c5b-b112-36a304b66dad) ?

I see multiple applications where the appOwnerOrganizationId is 9188040d-6c67-4c5b-b112-36a304b66dad. Some of the applications were clearly not published or owned by Microsoft. Applications with "Microsoft Accounts" publisher for example - Jira Cloud, OneDrive for slack, etc.

A quick search revealed it translates to "Microsoft Accounts".

  1. What does "Microsoft Accounts" as publisher means?
  2. In which cases the publisher of an app will be "Microsoft Accounts"?

    Hello @Ity ,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    It depends on how the application is registered, for an example: if you create an app using an Microsoft Account (MSA) e.g. outlook/hotmail, then it will be published in MSA tenant (MSA tenant GUID:9188040d-6c67-4c5b-b112-36a304b66dad and Name:


    In other case, lets say there are couple of apps, registered in (registered by users with personal Microsoft accounts) as multi-tenant apps so when one of your organization's users try to access them, then this would also create an app entry with appOwnerOrganizationId:9188040d-6c67-4c5b-b112-36a304b66dad .
