Office Script Error: "Script not found. It may have been unshared or deleted"

 I am working on  a Power Automate Run Script process which takes a number as a parameter and outputs a JSON object. I am having an error of "Script not found. It may have been unshared or deleted" whenever someone other than me is running the flow. The flow is triggered from PowerApps.


Here are the things I have done so far:

1. Made sure that workbook is shared and has edit (the person is even the owner now of the folder and the file itself)

2. Made sure that the script is shared enabled also

3. I even shared the power automate ownership to the person

4. Tested with other person with same permission configuration

5. Tested to run the script by its own both by me and that person and it's running okay except if the person run it through power automate

Hi @Anonymous,


What's the script do? Do you mind sharing the script?

How about trying to delete the script then recreate a new one to test?

hi @v-litu-msft 

What the script does is to create an array of object, shuffle it, and get the top items in the list. 

I tried recreating it as well.

Here is the script:

function main(workbook: ExcelScript.Workbook, top: number = 1😞 Result {
    let selectedSheet = workbook.getWorksheet("Participant");


    let selectedRange = selectedSheet.getRange("A1").getSurroundingRegion().getValues();


    let pool: Winner[] = [];


    for (let i = 1; i < selectedRange.length; i++) {
        let range = selectedRange[i];
        let upinO = range[3].toString();
            upin: upinO.substring(0,upinO.indexOf('@')),
            name: range[4].toString(),
            department: range[5].toString(),
            eligibility: range[7].toString(),


    var shuffledPool = shuffle(pool.filter(isEligible));


    console.log(shuffledPool.slice(0, top));


    let result = {
      eligibleCount: shuffledPool.length,
      winners :shuffledPool.slice(0, top)
    return result;




interface Result{
  winners: Winner[];
  eligibleCount: number;


interface Winner {
    name: string;
    upin: string;
    department: string;
    eligibility: string;


function isEligible(element, index, array) {
  return (element.eligibility == 'ok');


function shuffle(array) {
  var currentIndex = array.length, temporaryValue, randomIndex;


  // While there remain elements to shuffle...
  while (0 !== currentIndex) {


    // Pick a remaining element...
    randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * currentIndex);
    currentIndex -= 1;


    // And swap it with the current element.
    temporaryValue = array[currentIndex];
    array[currentIndex] = array[randomIndex];
    array[randomIndex] = temporaryValue;


  return array;

Hi @Anonymous ,


Unfortunately, at this moment, the Run script action can only access and execute the scripts created by yourself but not shared scripts.


Therefore, when you're sharing a flow with other people, you'll need to also share the original connection (the one created under your name) embedded in that flow. The original connection can make sure the action will run on-behalf-of you so it can have access to your script.


This is the default sharing behavior in Power Automate so presumably it should work for you. But can you please double check if the embedded connection is still pointing to your account?

Hi Yutao,
I added the other user as co-owner to the flow, and yet the flow is failing at Run Script stage. Any suggestions?

Hey Neha, 
Were you able to find the fail reason? I'm facing the same issue now. 


@Serbay , @Anonymous , @Neha2904


Please see if the steps below can solve the problem:


1. On the details page of the flow, click the "Edit" button next to "Run only users":

2. On the "Manage run-only permissions" panel, make sure to select "Use this connection (...)" from the "Connection Used" dropdown list.

3. Save the settings


4. Ask another user to try it again.


These settings will make sure the flow runs on-behalf-of the original owner of the flow.


Hope this helps!

Hi, Yutao 
Thanks a lot for your response! Definitely, this solution will be helpful on some of my flows. But Unfortunately, there is no option as "Run only users for me" since I use the trigger as "PowerApps". I guess this is valid only with some of the triggers.
Do you have any idea how can we make sure a flow which has a PowerApps trigger will run on the behalf of the owner, not the user?

Thanks a lot!


Hey @Serbay ,


Yes indeed it seems the "Run-only" settings only supports very few triggers (the manual button trigger being one).

I did a bit experiments and figured out a solution that worked for me -


* Firstly, you'll need to create all your flows and PowerApps apps within a "Solution". You can create a new solution from "Solutions/New solution":



* Within this new solution, create a button-triggered flow that runs Office Scripts. Let's call it "Child flow". Please note this flow requires to have a last action to respond to a PowerApp or flow.

* Configure this child flow with run-only users settings as described in my previous response. Make sure to choose "Use this connection ...".


* Within the same solution, create another flow with the PowerApps trigger. This flow will be triggered by your PowerApps app. In this flow, add a step to run the child flow you've just created above:

Parent flow.png


* Within the same solution, create your PowerApps app. Configure your PowerApps button to run the second flow (the parent flow).


* Now share the PowerApps app with another user, ask them to try it out, and see if the Run script action in the child flow can work properly.


Hope this can also work for you!

Hi, Yutao 
I really appreciate your help and responses. I have a single obstacle now, How can we pass the output of one of the actions from PowerApps triggered flow into child flow? I need to use the body of the parse JSON action in child flow.





Best Regards,

Hey @Serbay -


Please see if this works:


* In the child flow, add a text input (or whatever input type you need) to the manual trigger. Let's call it "Input". And pass that input value to the consuming actions after it. For example, here I'm passing it directly to the Run script action:



* In the parent flow (the PowerApps triggered flow), a new argument named "Input" to run the Child Flow will show up.

After Support call from MS support team, I found correct process to add both flows accurately.


1. Create a Child flow with Manual trigger with input -> add initialize variable and set value as input from manual trigger -> Add respond to a PowerApp action -> save the child flow

2. Create a Parent flow using PowerApp trigger -> Add run child flow action -> set value from Powerapp form -> Add respond to a PowerApp action and get input from Run Child flow action-> save the parent flow.

3. Add Parent flow to the Powerapps button.

4. Test your both flow by trying to hit PowerApp button in PowerApps form. 

5. If step 4 runs without any error, go for additional action sets in the child flow. Please make sure to add new connection reference on actions and select connection from the "Run only users " link button 





Regular Visitor

Hi All,

I created a version and it worked. you can follow up this steps:


Child flow
1. Create a Child flow
2. Add Manually trigger a flow
3. Add input to Manually trigger a flow- do not assign value to input



4. Initialize a variable
5. Value for variable will be output of input in Manually trigger a flow



6. Run excel script
7. Add output of variable as a excel script value



8. At the end, Add respond to a PowerApps or flow


Parent flow

1. Create a Parent flow
2. Add run child flow

3. Set child flow value with output of variable in child flow



4. Add Parent flow to the PowerApps button

Hey folks, just wanted to share an update with you all - I believe the new "Power Apps (V2)" trigger is supporting "Run only users" settings now. This means you should be able to build and share a Power Apps + Power Automate + Office Scripts solution without the need to introduce an extra child flow anymore!


So here is my flow that accepts a text input from PowerApps, process it through an Office Script, then return back to PowerApps. There is no need to do the tedious parent/child flow workaround!



Of course, you still need to config the "Run only users" for this flow so once it is integrated into a PowerApps app and shared out, it can work correctly for other users.


Please give it a try and let me know how it works!

Hello! I can confirm it works like a charm ! 











You saved me a few hours and some hairs. 😄

Hello Microsoft,

I got the same error message "Office Script Error: "Script not found. It may have been unshared or deleted"
when another ppl run the script via flow which is called from PowerApps
And I also created new flow with PowerAppsV2 in solution, I tried to add the new flow in PowerApps but I could not see it. Can you pls suggest how to call the new flow in solution in PowerApps ? 

Thank you!


@nanthant -


So I assume you shared your flow with another user, right? Do you recall how you configured the shared flow? Did you set it so another user would need to provide their own connection (credentials) to run it, or did you set it so the shared flow would continue to use your connection? The Run script action currently doesn't yet support the first case (another user using their own connection to run your script).

Hi Yutao,

Thanks for your response

I created new flow with PowerApps V2 again and configured connection to me, it works fine.
