Does adding a flow with a premium action to a Power App make the app require premium?

I have a Response action in my flow, and I'm not 100% if this will also require my Power App users to require premium if the flow is added to the Power App in question.

Yes.  Flows triggered manually from Power Apps run in the security context of the user who triggers them.  So that person will need to have a premium license.  That includes all the users of the Power App.

@Pstork1 So I am confused by 1 thing.

 

I made these flows outside of Power Apps then later added them to the Power App. If I understand correctly if I was in PowerApps then clicked "Create a new flow" - this is in user context, but I did not do the setup this way. Instead I added the flows after the fact from the list of available flows. The account that made the flows has premium everything, but the users accessing the App would not, is this still user context or does it not matter how the flow were added, the app becomes premium?

 

Disregard, what you said was 100%.

The key point is not where you created the flows, but what trigger you used.  Flows that use automated or recurrence triggers run in the context of the maker of the flow. But flows that use a manual trigger, like the Power Apps Trigger, run in the context of the person who triggered the flow. It doesn't matter where they are created.
