Not Connectors, Data -> Connections.

Re: shared flow and you send an email

When you share a Flow one of the owners is still the one who provides the context for the connections, normally the one who originally created the Flow.  This is one of the things you have to do when a user leaves a company, is have one of the co-owners edit the flow and change the connections being used to their own context.

Re: shared flow and you send an email

Does the edit of the co-owner automatically change the context or is there something specific other than the edit that you have to do change the context.

 

Example:  I have a flow that i originated.  I want to pass the ownership to the person who will run and maintain it.  It needs an edit in the body of an email.  If i have the co-owner do that edit will that be enough to change the context

@feilda 

If what you are asking is if you have a co-owner edit an email in a Flow, will the connection be changed to the co-owner (email will show as from the co-owner), the answer is no.  To change who the email is fom, the co-owner must explicitly change the connection on the sned an email action.

Re: shared flow and you send an email

So the only option i see available is "add a connection".  I do not see an option to change a connection.  Where do i find that?

Re: shared flow and you send an email

Find the connection being used for the Flow in the list of Connections in the Flow Designer.  The context menu has an entry for Switch Account.

Re: shared flow and you send an email

Pick Flow off the Office 365 app launcher menu or the office home page.  Or just go to https://flow.microsoft.com and login.  That's the Flow designer.  In the left menu bar you will see Data and under that Connections.  That's where you can change the account being used by the Flow.
