controlling who can create apps

while logged in to the Power Platform Admin Center, I see one Environment that has been created. This is name after our tenant and is the default environment. When I view this environment, I see "Environment Admin" and "Environment Maker" under a tile named "Access". Then, there is another tile named "Resources" under which I see "Power Apps" and "Flow".

Under "Environment Admin", I see no user is listed.
Under "Environment Maker", I see our tenant's name followed by (default) and of type "Org (tenant)"

What I'm trying to understand is this: Is everyone in the organization who has a Power App and Power Automate license able to create apps and flows using these Power tools? How can we limit access and control who can create flows and apps?

I just think that allowing the entire organization to create apps and flows can get pretty out of control.


Please advise.

For the default environment everyone with a license has the ability to create apps and that can't be changed.  For additional environments you can add or remove people from the maker role.  If they aren't makers or admins they won't be able to create apps but will still be able to run apps that are shared with them.
