Anyway to trigger flow by clicking button in sharepoint library

Hi,

 

We need to create a Single button in Modern Sharepoint Online Document Library that can trigger Power Automate FLow. Understand that it can be achieve using column json formatting to trigger the flow but that will be at item level. We want bulk operation on all the files in that document such as moving all the files to different library? any ideas how to implement this

I don't believe that is possible.  Power Automate isn't a security layer.  User's need access to everything that a flow does to the records in the data source when using SharePoint.

Thanks, using SFX will be over killing the solution.

The requirement is just to hide/restrict one column value for end user to choose. 

ASK: only PowerAutomate should be able to set "Final Draft" & "Finalized" values, and user can only be able to set other 3 from drop down in SharePoint.
