Adding an Azure Storage Connection - Short-cutting the Key requirement

Hey all,

 

I've set up a Flow to upload my image that I create in my powerapp up to my storage account.  This works great as me, however, when I log in as my end user account on the ipad and try to use the app it asks for my storage account and key.

 

This would be okay if a few things weren't the case:

a) The flow is enabled and the user has rights to it

b) And therefore to the connection implemented in it

c) The ipad is in Kiosk mode, so it cannot use any apps or anything other than powerapps.

d) The key for the storage accounts is long and random and I keep getting it wrong and therefore can't use the app.

 

Is there a way to shortcut this requirement of provisioning it with the key? I thought sharing the connection in Flow with that specific user might have done it.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I am afraid currently this will not work.

Sharing Flow won't be able to share the connections added within it.

For special connection type such as (Azure) SQL Server, there is a share tab could be used to manage sharing, for the other types, the user should provide the corresponding authentication information to use.

Re: Adding an Azure Storage Connection - Short-cutting the Key requirement

Thanks Michael - I thought that would be the case.  I know it probably has something to do with sharing the permissions and storing the credentials and security.  I get it.

 

Down the line, in your incredibly huge backlog of ideas and improvements, it would be nice though.  Or even having something similar to the Azure Key Vault, where we could place trusted credentials, and add users who can access them.

 

I know, huge ask, and not in scope, and miles to go - but if you don't ask, you don't get 🙂
