Creating ADO work item using Power Automate and Power Apps

Hello all,


I have a form that I created in Power Apps, and when a user submits the form, a Power Automate flow will be automatically triggered to create a PBI work item in ADO Board. However, it seems like if the user does not have access to the ADO Board, then the Power Automate workflow will fail at this connector. Is there a workaround to this issue without giving the ADO Board access, as I'd like to keep the ADO Board only accessible to a select few, while the form in Power Apps accessible to a bigger group of people. 


Appreciate any feedbacks and insights. Thank you

Create a system user(Service account in Azure Active Directory) to connect to ADO from Power Automate and use this user in the connection from power automate . So, that you are only dependent on one system user (service account concept) .


The system user should have Visual Studio Team Services account with API access enabled .


Hope the content above may help you.

Best Regards
