Block editing the list for the user, but not the flow

Hello everyone,

 

I'm trying to create an approval flow with a sharepoint list and I have a problem that I don't know how to solve.
I want to block the user's edit when he submits an item for approval and I did it using the validation list condition (simple condition like "SubmittedForApproval = 1").


The user can create and edit the item before submitting it for approval. Once the user has submitted, they will no longer be able to edit. So far so good. But when the flow is called and tries to modify the list item, the list performs the same validation condition and denies my update.

 

Is there any way to validate the edition list using the current user?

Hi 

When Flow edit the list item in sharepoint, it utilized user Sharepoint connection for operation as well.

If your sharepoint block all users edit permission, the flow won't be able to edit as well under Sharepoint user connection. It makes sense.
