custom connector for SharePoint Online

hi there,
i would like to create a custom connector for sharepoint, because the list I want to read and write to should not have any rights for the users running the app. I was thinking about a service principal, which gets the rights for the sharepoint in the azure ad (SP Online). Is there a way? I was hoping that the default sharepoint connector would have the ability to use one user for all, or as i said, the service principal without the users getting permissions to the list.
It would be nice if someone could help me or even have a more elegant solution.

short about the app: several questions should be added to the list by dropdown and text fields and reloaded for editing. currently functions like patch and updateif are in use.

many thanks in advance.

Hi @Saintenr ,

 

I do not think this could be achieved. To share app with users, you will need to share resources on which the app depends.

Re: custom connector for SharePoint Online

That would be a nessecery feature that should be implement by the Powerapps Team. Like that it is possible to connect a SharePoint List at the same way like an SQL Database. There it is possible to connect the App with one user only...

Hi @Saintenr I agree this would be a necessary feature. For the time being, you can submit this as an idea.
