When I create an item in a sharepoint list from a powerapps form the wrong user is inserted into the Created By field

The form was created by my user but a technical user has been made for flows and forms. 

The form used to work correctly and put the correct user in the created by field. 

But now the technical user is inserted into the created by field and this is messing up my flows. 

There is no special action on save or anything I can find. 


Is there some way I can check or correct this?


Edit: It appears to only happen with my user. When an other user creates an item via the form it gets the correct user



Hi SvenMaesADO,


Have you checked what user do you have in the connection to Sharepoint?

If you edit the app, you can check it.




In the datasource? It is connected via the technical user. 

The strange thing is it appears to only go wrong for my user. Other users don't seem to have this problem. 

When another user creates an item, the correct user is displayed in the created by field. 

Did you check the permissions in sharepoint? 
If you take a network traces, can you see any error?
