I have a flow with the trigger "For a selected file" and I can see it by clicking on its three dot menu and then going down to power automate and seeing it as one of the options. My users who have full control of the site and are the ones I am developing the flow for say they do not get this option in the power automate menu. Is there something else I need to do for them to see it?

I have no answer for this, maybe you have to give them also permissions to the flow?

At least this could be a workarround:

@Nico Weber Thanks for the reply. I actually did try implementing this and for the people who don't see it appear in their automate menu, they click the button and nothing happens. Meanwhile for others the typical box appears on the right side with the blue button to "Run Flow"

 

We're hoping to not have to add people directly as owners of the flow because people move in and out of teams in our organization and that would be too much to maintain. So we've set it by adding the library as an owner of the flow so theoretically anybody with edit rights should be able to see and use the flow but that hasn't happened.
