List all SharePoint online site collections with active connections to Power Automate or PowerApps

We are migrating tenants and need to identify all SharePoint site connections with active connections from Power Automate of PowerApps as these site collections will need to be migrated in a different manner.


I have PowerShell's that identify all Power Automate flows and PowerApps and their connection types but short of going into each Power Automate and PowerApps with a SharePoint connection and grabbing the SharePoint URL or ID, I haven't found a way to identify the SharePoint site collections in PowerShell. We have thousands of Power Automate flows and PowerApps and going through manually could take an exceptionally large amount of time. Any leads would be most appreciated.

Hello, thanks for reaching out. 

I believe what you are looking for are Connection References. I have not used power shell before but I know you can list the connections according to this documentation linked below. It says Get-PowerAppConnection is the cmdlet. 

PowerShell Cmdlets for PowerApps and Flow creators and administrators | Microsoft Power Apps

Let me know if this helps or I am missing something. But I think if you searched for Connection References that is what you are looking for. You can see them listed in on the left hand side under the dataverse heading. 

Have a great day!

Did you find a means to do this?  I looked through the Get-PowerAppConnectionReferences results and I don't see the URL of the connected SharePoint site is included.

Thanks.  That site is specific to Flows though, which you can also derive from PowerShell in the FlowDefinition.  However, this doesn't apply to Power Apps that are connected to a site.

Unfortunately, there is not a built-in tool or script that will provide a list of all SharePoint Online site collections with active connections to Power Automate or PowerApps to my knowledge.

However, there are a couple of methods:

1. PowerShell Script:
You can use PowerShell scripts with cmdlets like `Connect-SPOService`, `Get-SPOSite` and `Get-PnPFlow` to loop through all your SharePoint Online sites and list flows associated with them. This, however, would require substantial scripting knowledge and does not guarantee a perfect result as you would still need to manually analyze if the flow connects the two services.

2. Power Platform Admin center:
Navigate to the Power Platform Admin center ( Here, you can view all environments, and by drilling down into each environment, you can view all the PowerApps and Flows inside it. You can also see the connections and analyze if SharePoint connections exist. This requires manual effort and might not be feasible for a large number of environments.

3. Audit Log Search:
If your organization has the necessary Office 365 licenses (E5 or Audit Log add-on), you can use Audit Log Search in the Security & Compliance center. Here, you can search for specific activities related to Power Automate, PowerApps, and SharePoint. To find this, go to the Security & Compliance center and then to Search > Audit log search. Choose the necessary activities (like "Flow Run Success") and the date range, and then search. You can Export the results and then analyze them. This approach might not give you a clear cut, but it can provide an idea of which SharePoint sites are commonly used in the context of Power Automate and PowerApps.

Remember, these are all workaround methods as there is currently no direct method to fetch a list of all SharePoint online site collections with active connections to Power Automate or PowerApps.

"We have thousands of Power Automate flows and PowerApps"

You could also look into but it takes a bit of setup.
