check if team has role in Power Automate

In my model driven app I have a table, Profit Centre which has the field delegatedTeam. delegatedTeam is a lookup to the built-in Team table. There is a business requirement that the delegatedTeam be assigned the security role PCdelegate.

 

I'm building a flow that is triggered by a change in the delegatedTeam  field.

  • Do I need to check if the team has the required role?
  • Or can I just relate the required row to the team without checking?
  • If I have to check, how do I list the team's existing roles?  (teams <-> security roles is many-to-many)

Hi @halifaxious,

Why do you need to check? You can update the row directly and if the team doesn't have the right privileges then the update operation will fail. If for whatever reason you need to check, suggest to check instead by security role by another field/column (or new one if it doesn't exist) on Team that can give you the right filtering.

The N-N (many-to-many) table that relates a team to security role is "teamroles_association" BTW.

Hope this helps!

It's possible that the Team may already have the required role. I wasn't sure if Power Automate would gracefully handle trying to link the same role to a team twice.

No PA or Dataverse won't assign roles automatically

I think there's a misunderstanding. I was not expecting a team to get a role without intervention. I was concerned that if a team already had "role X", giving it "role X" again would break something. Evidently I don't need to worry about that.

Got it, and no you don't need to worry about it 🙂
