Azure AD connector always throwing up Authorization_RequestDenied

The goal I have is automating the process of updating user AD properties based on changes in a data file. The issue I have is with the Azure AD connector always throwing up an Authorization_RequestDenied error and "Insufficient privileges to complete the operation." error message. Here's what I've set up so far:


I've created a Flow that is using the Azure AD connector, which I used my own user to log in to.
Using a manual trigger (for now).
I've configured the Flow to hard code the Office Location property only (for testing purposes).
Manually running the flow results in the error described above.
I read that the user that runs this requires the following permissions, and I had my user added to the Azure AD Connector - PowerApps and Flow permissions in Azure.



Other than this, I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. Please halp.

Hi @zarekmarshall ,


How did you grant your access to the below 3 graph permissions?  Do you have AAD admin consent approvals in your app registration which requires approval?

Did you ever find a solution to this? - I'm having the exact same problem and I'm close to tearing my little remaining hair out...

My flow is running as the most highly privileged account that exists in my tenant, It's GA, User Admin, and several more. From the Azure AD portal I certainly can add/remove users to groups, but no matter which way I try, I just cannot get the Azure AD connector running as the same user to do it...
