SharePoint option missing in Owners tab

I'm trying to create a flow that's triggered from PowerApps. The flow should create a folder in a SharePoint list. In similar flows in our environment, we've had the option to set the SharePoint list as the owner of the flow. This prevents us from having to add every App user as an owner to the flow.

 

However, the SharePoint tab is not available in the new flow. What do we need to do to get this option?

 

The SharePoint connection is working in the flow: When it runs it successfully creates the new folder.

The account I'm using is a Site Collection Administrator in the target site, it is also added to the Owners group.

 

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

@GerbenA 

The ability to add a SharePoint list as an owner only appears when using the For a Selected item trigger.   You may want to consider using a group and adding the group as a Flow owner.  The same group should have permissions to the list.

Re: SharePoint option missing in Owners tab

@ScottShearer  Thanks, when I select that trigger it appears indeed.

 

Do you happen to know if this has changed (recently/intentionally) or if it is a bug?

The reason for my surprise is that other flows never had this trigger, but do have a SharePoint List as owner. This enabled us to allow people to run the flow without being allowed to edit it.
