Hide lists for the Sharepoint site: Limit access to PowerApps only

Mateus Roberto Wilke 21 Reputation points

I need to restrict access to sharepoint lists by PowerApps only; the reason: I restricted access according to users' email. We do not want users to access this information through the sharepoint site as they would have unrestricted access.

    Hi @Mateus Roberto Wilke ,

    Per my research, we are not able to restrict access to PowerApps by the user in SharePoint. If you do not want users to access PowerApps through the SharePoint site, then it is recommended that you disable PowerApps functionality directly on the page, making it invisible. You could use spfx to upload custom css file to SharePoint online to hide the button.

    References to third-party documentation: Disable PowerApps button on list/document library

    Hi @Mateus Roberto Wilke ,

    In addition to options suggested by @Xuyan Ding - MSFT , you can also hide the list using PowerShell script. Please note that this would hide the list from site contents page but list can still be accessed using url.

    The other option which I can think of could be calling custom api (say azure function) to get data from SharePoint (using app only permission by registering an app) and not assigning other users permission on the list.

    Hope this helps.
