Can connections used in connectors be made dynamically?

Any suggestion on what the best practice is for assigning the connector connection so it can be dynamic or configurable? If I create a flow an distribute it to another tenant I am required to updated all the connectors in the flow. It would be nice if I could just create a connector and specify a service principal.

Hello @pageman , 

 

In reviewing your post I am understanding that you are looking to see if connections for connectors can be dynamically used across multiple tenants. If that's the case, this option is currently not supported.

 

The reason being is that Power Automate workflows are built on an instance of a Dataverse database environment, which in turn is created under the Microsoft Azure Active Directory tenant, and it's resources can only be accessed by the users within that tenant. Environments are bound by their geographical location, so the resources associated with environment are also bound. 

 

Now, you can submit your ideas in the community using this link: Power Automate Ideas - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

Hopefully this helps! 🙂
