Can I use JSON column format to hide show power automate button in a SharePoint list depending if the user is an admin or not.

I don't want people with read only access to trigger the flow.

SharePoint JSON formatting does not support checking site/list permissions officially.

However, below JSON formatting works to check if user has read or 'more than read' permissions:

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "style": {
    "visibility": "=if([$PermMask]>='0xb00','hidden','visible')"
  "txtContent": "=if([$PermMask]>='0xb00','Read-only','More than read')"

So, you can change the visibility of power automate button element in JSON based on [$PermMask] as shown above.
