We have a classic team site collection inside our sharepoint online tenant. and i am trying to prevent contributor users from creating PowerApps and Flow for the sharepoint lists. For example we have a custom list, and when i access the site using the sharepoint admin, i got the options to create PowerApp & Flow, as follow:- enter image description here

while when i access the site using a contributor user, seems the PowerApp option will be missing but the ability to create Flow will be there, as follow:- enter image description here

so can anyone advice on these 2 points please:-

  1. Which setting inside our office 365 prevented contributor users from creating PowerApp for the sharepoint lists?

  2. Can we also prevent contributor users from creating Flow? as in the current settings, contributor users can create Flow which will affect all the users using the list.

Thanks

  1. The permission. Because the user does not have the enough permission in the list, then the user cannot create the PowerApps in the list.

  2. If you grant the user with Read permission, then you can prevent the user from creating Flow or PowerApps in the list.

  • ok thanks for the reply. for point one, what is the minimum permission required to be able to create PowerApps, now seems the built-in Contribute will not allow users to create PowerApp (which is good). But for example will the "Approver" permission level allow creating powerapp? for the second point, i want to prevent this for contributor users, similar to PowerApp case , is this possible? – SharePoint TestDev Mar 13 at 11:31

    The minimum permission required to be able to create PowerApps is Edit permission. For the second point, it is not possible to prevent Flow for contributor users. You should grant the user with Read permission, then the user cannot create the Flow in the list. – Amy_MSFT Mar 14 at 1:38
  • ok i see, now seems MS is treating PowerApp as a customization to the list, which requires Edit permission... but i am not sure why MS did not treat the MS Flow equally ... in all the cases i will not define the users as reader just to prevent them from creating MS Flows for the list... – SharePoint TestDev Mar 14 at 12:00
  • anyway thanks for you valuable replies,,,, although i am still unhappy that contributor users can create MS Flows... – SharePoint TestDev Mar 14 at 12:00
