Access Management using Power Automate Flows in dynamics 365

In Dynamics, managing access to sensitive data is handled through security measures such as role-based permissions.

In this blog, we will utilize the example of a sales manager granting/modifying/revoking the permission of a salesperson in a lead record. To achieve this, we will need to create three different Power Automate flows, each of which is explained below.
