Read Rights and Triggering Flow From List

Is there a way to have read only users be able to trigger a flow from a document or list? I'm trying to add a feature to report a file as invalid on our intranet site but it doesn't work unless you have edit rights. Any suggestions?

It will work, but only if you add all the user's who need to be able to do this as Run only users or a regular Azure AD security group with all those users as a Run Only user

The normal library triggers won't work for Read permission users since they fire after a document has been created or modified.  But I just ran a test and if you share a Selected File Trigger based flow with a user as a Run Only user then that user will be able to select the file and start the flow from the Flow menu in the library.

I forgot to mention, this site is accessed by thousands of users and giving the library run permissions in the flow still doesn't allow read only users to trigger it. And "everyone except external users" is not an option for run only users.
