Use Microsoft Identity Platform authentication for sharepoint connector instead of user/service account

I'm working on a Power Apps application using a flow, and I'm currently facing an issue for which I can't find any clear solution/explanation.


The flow is using a Sharepoint connector to update a collection, for now connected with my account.
The problem is that if my account is disabled because I leave the company, then the flow will stop to work.
I searched for a solution and found out that the most common was to create a service account dedicated to this connection.
But my colleagues would prefer to use Microsoft Identity Platform rather than a service account.

My question is : Is there an alternative to the service account ? Is it possible to use de Microsoft Identity Platform authentication ?
And If it's possible, how should I setup this configuration ? Or should I create a custom connector ? I can't see how to connect Power Automate connector to Sharepoint with this kind of authentication.


Thank you in advance for your answers and your help.

Hi @Margaux-S

 

I have made a test and don't see anywhere in Microsoft could use identity Platform authentication for sharepoint connector currently, I'm afraid that the function is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

Thank you for your answer,

 

I'm really trying to not use a service account, could it be possible to configure the Sharepoint connector to use the account of the user who launch the flow dynamically ? Like with a connection asked in power apps, or something similar ?

I suggest that you could take a try with that.
