Allow users to start a Flow when they have read-only access to a list
Users need a minimum of Contributor access to a list to trigger a Flow. Flow has its own run-only users list, so why do SP permissions have anything to do with it? It seems they only need this access to be able to trigger Flow, not because they actually need to edit the list.
The work around - give users contribute but remove it using item-level permissions, is horrible and gives the users a quick edit button that won't work.

This needs to be addressed by the Power Platform team at Microsoft. It is very common for SharePoint administrators to create a 'Contributor without delete' permission so that users of e.g. a document library can add and edit documents, but not delete them. Whenever this type of scenario is in play, forget about using Power Automate, because the users with the 'Contributor without delete' permission will not be able to run any flows.
I too cannot believe how few votes this suggestion has had. Be nice for Microsoft to recognise this as the bug that it is and remedy it soon.
This should be so obvius
I agree! This is a huge one for my organization as I want to add the ability for users to report an invalid document. Killing me >_<

Microsoft need to buckup and add this features!
Just ran into this one myself. Cannot believe that has is so low of a count.
Need users to be able to run a flow on a list to sign up for a course but don't want them to have edit on the list as I don't want them changing it manually. Can't believe we can't pick the SharePoint Group we want to use. Please add this functionality. Thanks.
