How to share a Flow with user and give him read/use only permission

I have created a flow using a Power Apps trigger, that starts when clicking on a button in powerapps. How do I share this flow with user, but give him read only permission, so that he cannot change the flow? I dont see this option anywhere, I can only add more owners.

 

If I am correct in order for the user to use the powerapps with the power automate flow, I must share flow with him, along with app ofcourse?

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Thank you for posting.

 

According to your description, you would like to use power apps as trigger and share run-only permission to other users. If any misunderstanding, please kindly let me know.

 

Yes. You are correct. We need to share the flow and app if you want someone else to run it. However,  the run-only permission is only available in the flow with trigger "Manually trigger a flow" or "For a selected item/file". Thus, this is quite normal if you can’t assign run-only permission when you are using ‘PowerApps’ as trigger. It’s by design.

I’m afraid the run-only permission is not supported in your case. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please consider owner permission instead.

 

Hope the content above may help you.
