SharePoint Permissions

I have developed a COVID19 tracking app.  I am using a SharePoint List created by a service account to capture this information.  I have to restrict the permissions to Contribute to all users while the advanced settings are set to Read items created by the user and No Create access.  One of the lists contains all of the users from an AD Group imported by a service account.  If the user is in the group, the app will run app.  If not, the app will close.  


My users are unable to access the account. I believe it may be due to the permission of the running user list.  

Since this information is sensitive, I do not want this information viewable by all users.

With privacy being such an important feature, Sharepoint is not the best backend for your purposes. Users will need access to the entire list (no row-level security), so anyone that goes looking for the data can find it and see it all. Dataverse or SQL are better solutions for this.

Hope this helps,
