Approval flow showing diffrent requested my name

Hello Everyone,

 

I'm currently using start approval when a new item is added templet. When submitting, approver gets the email but there is a line that says Requested by and it shows my name and email as a requester.

The actual requester shows in the lower part with name and date. I am using another users account to create the request. I have created the SharePoint site but not the list nor the flow.

 

When creating the flow I have used general IT email. This email is not associated with my account. I don’t know where this flow is getting my name and email. I have attached the images for flow and email the approver gets

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Henok22 , 

 

You can check the connection being used for Approvals.

You can configure the requestor details in the approval action as shown in the image below:

Lastly, you could check the run only user and connection assigned here and configure as shown in the screeshot below:

Hope this Helps!
