PowerApps/Flow: Deleting a Connection

I was doing some housekeeping on my PowerApps and Flow connections this evening, and found this nice little safety net…

To delete a Connection (say, for example, you no longer have access to a given email account), you just click on it in the list of connections:

select-connection-to-delete

If you blithely try to click the deletion garbage can in the upper right corner of the next screen, you’ll see a warning listing which PowerApps and Flows use this connection:

In addition, there are tabs to see who this app has been shared with, and its versions. Of course, you can get to this information from the list of PowerApps as well, but it’s cool to be able to see it here, where you’re working with your connections.

Happy Apping!
