Set different permissions for Flow and SharePoint List

Hello, 

 

i created an approval Flow, which takes infos from a Form and then writes it into a SharePoint List if it's approved. 

My question is now how I set the permissions, so Users can create Iteams in the List via Flow, but not manually. Is that possible? 

 

And finally a general question, which permissions are applied when a flow is executed? 

 

Thanks in advance and greetings 

Tobias

Re: Set different permissions for Flow and SharePoint List

 

Hi @MS_Tobi ,

 

If you don’t want to allow users to manually create the item in list, you could try to only give users permission to view the list.

In flow, you could add the user as the owner, they could have the permission to access the flow:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-automate/create-team-flows

 

If the trigger is a manual trigger, you could set Run only users to manage who have permissions to run flows, please check the following article to get more details:
