Does When a file is deleted in SharePoint trigger run only if user has site owner rights?

Hi,

 

I have written a flow to run on " When a file is deleted", trigger of SharePoint.

However i got the below error

"Only Site Collection Admins are allowed to use this trigger."

 
I made myself (the SharePoint member) as an owner of SharePoint site and it worked. 
 
Is this a limitation where only delete by site admins, can run this trigger.
Is it possible that when a SharePoint user deletes a file, the flow trigger will work.

Hi @Rilsina 

 

Yes, there's indeed a limitation. Please check this other post for a description:

Hi @Rilsina ,

 

This trigger is really only available in the Site Collection Admins, but this is an Automated trigger, which is triggered automatically, as long as someone deletes the items in the specified list.

 

So if a user with corresponding permissions creates a Flow using this trigger, once an item is deleted, the Flow will trigger. The user who deleted the item does not matter whether it is Site Collection Admins.

 

Hope this makes sense.
