disable Flow in user portal

We keep using Nintex in SharePoint Server for a long time. So when we first touch O365 as well as its own workflow design tool, we're not very sure about the conception.

A big point I wanna confirm is, if it's possible that we block the Flow platform to all users. The ideal condition is, only Admins can design and implement workflows. Normal users can use the created workflows, like doing approval or info submitting. But they cannot create their own, or even have no access to Flow.

Is this possible? Shall I use Powershell or the Data Loss Prevention technology?

Hi @Ella,


Have you checked the following article?

Flow in your organization Q&A

Currently there is no way to block Microsoft Flow platform for all users regarding individual's uses, but if your company wishes to restrict the use of organizational-only data inside of Microsoft Flow, that is possible through Data loss prevention (DLP) policies.


If you wish to remove the flow icon under Office 365 App launcher, then you may choose to remove the corresponding Flow license, through Office 365 Admin Portal, or using PowerShell for Bulk removal.
