Show sharepoint list in canvas app using power automate

Hi everyone,

So we have a client that requires us to remove the sharepoint connector in the powerapps.
But there is a list form the sharepoint the we need to show in the app.

I am thinking if it is possible to do with power automate? Like, getting the list from sharepoint then returning the value to canvas app. I searched for awhile and didn't find anything. Is this possible? if yes can you give a quick guide or link of documentations. Thank you very much.

Yes, you can start a flow from Power Apps, retrieve a list of data from SharePoint and return it to Power Apps.  But I suspect you will run into two practical issues trying to do it that way.

 

1) Returning a set of data from a flow to an App requires an HTTP response action which will require a premium license for every user running the Power app.

2) Removing the SharePoint connector from Power Apps will probably be done through the Power Platform DLP policies.  Those policies will apply to both Power Apps and Power Automate. So if you don't have the connector for Power Apps you won't have it for Power Automate either.

Hi @ThareLyn ,

A bit of a strange requirement, but what are you going to use as the data source for Power Apps (you have to store the data somewhere). That aside, I guess you could send an identifier (the ID number would be best) in a Flow and then get the item and return it.
