I am making an app where I need to have managers confirm peoples information in Azure AD. Is there a way to get groups of people from AD without being linked to AD. I do not need to be able to write to AD just read from it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?
Do you want to get groups of people from Azure AD without adding the Azure AD connector as a data source within your app?
If you want to get groups of people from Azure AD without adding the Azure AD connector as a data source within your app, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.
I agree with @PeteMc's thought almost, you could consider take a try to create a custom connector using Azure Active Directory Graph API (or Microsoft Graph) to access the Azure AD resource.
More details about the Azure Active Directory Graph API, please check the following article:

In addition, please also check if the follownig blog would help in your scenario:
Currently, our AzureAD is not up to date; people exist that should not, names are not correct, etc. We are creating an app that managers will have to use to keep their employee's information up to date. The app will show them all their employees currently in the system. They will be able to add, delete, or edit the information but it will not directly edit azure but instead, be sent to HR so they can confirm or decline. Please let me know if anything needs to be clarified.
