Change original owner of a flow

Hello,

 

I have created a couple of flows under my own account, but I want to change it to a generic user in order to make sure that the flows keep running should my account be deleted one day.

 

I can add an owner to a flow, but behind the scenes I continue to be the original owner it seems. One example is that sending mails in a flow is done showing my name. The same goes for approval mails as part of the 'Start an approval' action.

 

Is there a way to make another owner the original owner of a flow?

 

Thanks and regards

Wim

Re: Change original owner of a flow

Hi @wplingers,

 

Do you want to change the original owner of a flow within Microsoft Flow?

 

I afraid that there is no way to directly change the original owner of a flow within Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

In addition, if you want to make another owner (Another Microsoft Flow account) the original owner of your flow, you could consider take a try to export your flow as a Package and then import the flow package into another user Microsoft Flow account.

 

More details about exporting and importing your flows across environments with packaging, please check the following article:

Best regards,
