Re: Get executing user in Flow for user records only

Hi @eka,

 

From your description, you could consider comparing the information of the user who executed Flow and the user of the input data.

Only the information of the user input that executes Flow is obtained, and then sent to the database.

Sorry, I don't know much about apps. It seems that you could carry user information when they enter data. You could get this information and compare it with the user who executed the Flow.

Please take a try.

 

Best Regards,

Barry

Re: Get executing user in Flow for user records only

Hi @eka,

 

Looking at the screenshots you provided, I am afraid that your requirements cannot be achieved currently.

The user who executes the sql store procedure depends on which account the connection configuration of the Excute store procedure action is.

This cannot be changed during the execution of the Flow. This is required to be configured in advance.

 

Best Regards,

Barry

Re: Get executing user in Flow for user records only

Thanks, but what does configuring in advance mean. does it mean I have to do that in sql? if you can clarify that for me and any other help.

Re: Get executing user in Flow for user records only

Hi @eka,

 

I mean, the user who executes the sql store procedure depends on who is the user of the connection account configured within Excute sql  procedure action. These are pre-configured before Flow is executed and cannot be changed during Flow execution.
