Change Created By or Modified by in SharePoint list

Hi,

I have a flow that populates a sharepoint list containing a list of users and some related informations.

When I run the flow, all the items are created and modified by the flow user.

I'd like to modify the created or modified by field with the username in order to create a sharepoint view filtered on this fields, this way a user could see only the informations related to himself.

Thanks for your help

Unfortunately, you cannot edit the created by or modified by fields in SharePoint. You'll have to figure out a different way to create the views.  

If your list is a list of users are the users a person/group field? If they are you could use that field to filter the views instead of the created by or modified by fields.

Re: Change Created By or Modified by in SharePoint list

I wanted to mention that this is actually not correct anymore.  You can change the Created, Created By, Modified and Modified By using Microsoft Flow.  The FlowNinja John Liu shows you how in his post on the subject.  I think it all stemmed by from the whole created then update loop.   I have already used this for multiple Flows.  

 

In my case, I needed to update Created By to ensure that item-level permissions in a list worked correctly.  I checked my person field against Created By and if different, update it.  Works great!
