In SharePoint online, I have deployed a SharePoint designer workflow and I want to publish the app to all the users. When I try to set the permissions for the workflow app, I am not able to see “workflow” app is missing in App Permissions page.

As mentioned in screenshot copy the ID of the app to fetch it desired site collection.
Once you copy the app ID open the site collection where you want to add the workflow app.

Paste the below app permissions xml in App’s Permission Request XML:

<AppPermissionRequests><AppPermissionRequest Scope=”http://sharepoint/content/sitecollection/web” Right=”FullControl” /></AppPermissionRequests>

Note: Ensure that there are no additional spaces and enter in this to avoid any further issues.

Click on the Create button to add permissions to the workflow app to the desired site collection.

Click “Create” button. You will then be asked for consent. Verify that you are asked for consent to give workflow full control of the site. If you do not see full control consent request it probably means that there was an error in the permissions request XML
