If you are someone who has been asked to create Flows in Power Automate, and you go to Power Automate portal (https://make.powerautomate.com/) to make your first Flow in your environment, you may come across this if you are not an Administrator yet –
The error message would say -“You are not permitted to make flows in this ‘<EnvironmentName>’. Please switch to the default environment, or to one of your own environment(s), where you have maker permissions.“
Now, let’s see what the issue is about.
Environment Maker Permissions
As a Power Platform Administrator yourself, you’ll need to provide Environment Maker privileges (Security Role) to the affected User in your environment –
- Navigate to the the Settings for the Environment in PPAC (https://admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com/)
And look for Security Roles in Access area –
- Look for the Environment Maker role.
- When in Environment Maker role, look for the Add People button on the top.
- Now, search for the user who should have the Environment Maker permissions and click Add (which will be at the bottom of the pane).
- Now, you’ll see that this user is added.
- Now, when the User will refresh the Flow Editor, they’ll no longer see the error message and will be able to create/save Flows.
Hope this was useful!
