File System Connector issue with other users

I have File System connector in Power Automate that retrieves a file from our File System and sends it as attachment in a email. This Flow is being called from a PowerApps's button. That works good and all when I run it. Now when I share this App with other users, they get the "Sign in" request from this connector. It ask them for root folder, username, password and gateway. I verified the Connector has all the root folder and credentials right.

Any hints on how to resolve this issue?


Thanks very much in advance for your help,

Hi @MidwayC11,


  • Could you please share the return error information?
  • What's the message you received?
  • Is the File Systems you are using on your local or network machines?

There is a document about creating a connection, hope it helps:

@v-litu-msft  I have also experienced this issue. Sharing a flow that uses the file system connector doesn't use the details the flow owner used to create the connection. It asks the user to re-enter details (root folder path, authentication details, etc.). In my case I am implicitly sharing this flow implicitly through a powerapp.
