Flow permissions - who can be Environment Maker for the Default Environment

Our users have Office 365 E3 subscription which means they get Flow and PowerApps. However, from admin view point there is very little control about the 'Default Environment'. None of our users or admins currently have a Power Apps P2 license which means we can't create or change Environment settings. Thus, we are stuck with the default settings that Default Environment comes with.

 

We would like the capability of restricting who in the organisation can create Flows or Power Apps. As per my understanding, we can control that via Environment Maker role e.g. By assigning this role to only selected users. Resources created by these users can then be shared with All Users. This will allow selected users (Environment makers) to develop Flows while permitting all users to run them.

 

Does anyone know of any way of controlling the settings for 'Default Environment' or the only option is to buy at least one P2 license and then use that to apply the required settings.

Re: Flow permissions - who can be Environment Maker for the Default Environment

Hi @ SinghG,

 

You could refer to link below to learn more about controlling the settings for 'Default Environment':

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/environments-overview-admin

As is said in the link, the Default environment is shared by all users and any user can create flows in the Default environment.

So you could not restrict who in the organisation can create Flows or Power Apps.

And if you would like to share the flow with other user in the organization, you could refer to link below to create a team flow:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/create-team-flows

Hi @SinghG,

 

Have you had a chance to consider @v-yuazh-msft's insight & resource suggestions for your Flow scenario described above?

If yes and you found those suggestions to be satisfactory, please go ahead and mark @v-yuazh-msft's reply as the "Accepted Solution". 🙂


Happy Flowing,

Re: Flow permissions - who can be Environment Maker for the Default Environment

I am working with a client who has a Office 365 E1 license. From what I can gather, that gives the same capabilites as MS Flow Free. However, when I add and Owner to a Flow it becomes a Team Flow. The MS page regarding Team Flows says that only a 'Paid Subscription' will allow that. Does the O365 E1 license count as a paid subscription for MS Flow as well?
