ERROR CODE
RESOLUTION
To provide consent for non-admin users to create connections from the workflow designer
  1. Login to Azure Portal with a Global Admin account, go to Azure Active Directory > User settings.
  2. Select Yes for the setting "Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf"
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
A dialog indicating admin approval required simply means the SharePoint Online tenant has been configured to not allow non-admins to provide consent to apps, if this occurs speak to an admin to either create the connection or allow the consent (setting in Azure portal).
