Is it possible to allow a group of users to update a SharePoint list using powerapps, but not update the SHarePoint list by navigating to the list and updating it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you find a better solution to this?
This is one of my main concerns about powerapps as well. We normally build our apps such that all validation and logic is built into the app and not the data source. To me that is really the whole purpose of the app in the first place: allowing the developer to build complex logic around how users interact with the data source, what they are able to do and the conditions under which they can do it. If users can just opt to interact with the data source directly it really defeats the entire purpose of the app.
Yes - Use PowerAutomate to update the list with elevated permissions. You call a flow within PowerApps , then the Flow you call in the "PowerApp" flow should call another flow that has permissions to that list. The flow you call in the embedded PowerApp flow ( via an HTTP Request) will operate in the context of the author of that called flow.
