My flow is changing Modified By to me

Hi all, 

 

I have a flow to update a document's metadata depending on the creator.

It's a managed metadata property and the trigger is "When a new file is created"

 

Of crouse, this changes the Modified By to me, which is not what I want. 

I understand the logic behind it (sort of), but this is new, isn't it? I can remember building workflows where this does not happen.

Is it possible to change a document's metadata via Flow that doesn't change the Modified By?

Seems like a major business use

 

Thanks!

Has anyone found a solution that works for a document library?
