Do users need read permissions to lists to view the list data in a powerapp?

I have a form that submits data to 1 list, and pulls in data from several.

 

Do the users need read access to the lists that the data is pulled from? I understand that they need edit access to the data storing the information. If they don't have read access, will the data just not display in the form?

Re: Do users need read permissions to lists to view the list data in a powerapp?

Hi @rsparks ,

Yes, if you want users read the data from data source in PowerApps, you need to give users the permission of reading data source.

If you want users write data from data source in PowerApps, you need to give users the permission of writing data source.

If you want to share apps to others, you not only need to share the app, but also need to share data source and give them the permission of data source.

Here's a doc about sharing app's data source for your reference:

If your problem still exists, please tell me what is your data source.
