How to limit SharePoint List Permission but all users still able to change/view data in Powerapps

I am writing an apps for end-users. They are now available to view/create/edit/delete list items.

However, I want to limit their permission on Sharepoint List and they are only able to do changes though Powerapps.

Is that possible to remove all end-users permission in Sharepoint list, but end-user still able to view/create/edit/delete list items though Powerapps? (maybe save a system account in Powerapps to get/process data?)

Hi @WalterFlow ,

Power Apps relies on the permissions the user has to the data source for the maximum allowable. I mention this as you can restrict permissions in Power Apps to less than SharePoint, but not the other way around.

The easiest way is the "hide" the SharePoint list (a sub-site with a list name not easily guessed generally works) or an easier method is simply remove the list fro the site navigation.

Thanks for the reply, it can help to hide the list from all normal user.

However, it means everyone in the organization, who get the SharePoint list links, can directly edit the list data.

 

Currently, some of the users(e.g. admin) need to directly edit the list.

That means I may need to create another app for admin function for them.
