populate CDS cell when user without permissions edits

I'm new to power automate, so apologies in advance for my lack of knowledge...

 

I have a CDS entity "Projects" and it has one column/field (Commission %) user B does not have permissions to view/edit. It also has a second column/field "managers" which is a lookup field that user B *can* view/edit.

Is it possible to create an Automated Flow for user A (who does have view/edit permissions for *all* fields), such that when user B selects "manager B", the flow will propagate Commission % with the value 1%?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Medoomi ,

 

I agree with @MinRao .

The flow action would run with the permission of the connection account in the action no matter the permission of the user that would run the flow.

  I think if you update a CDS record in your flow.  It will run as you Connection 's security , So if you use user A to connect to CDS, it should have permission to update the field (Commission %).
