Adopted authorities. Flow to use the Flow authors Sharepoint permission and not the executor

A flow needs to copy a file to a libary that the user executing the flow does not have write authority to that library.

 

Can the Flow run under adopted authorities?

 

Cheers, Richard

@Gatwick 

Flows run as and with the permissions of the user who is named in the connection performing the action and not in the context of the user who executed the Flow.  The excetion is Flow associated with a PowerApps.

Hi @Gatwick,

 

You can check the Permission Levels of SharePoint:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/understanding-permission-levels#default-permission-level...

If you only have view permission, you maybe cannot copy files by using flow.

Can a power app be configured to move content? If not then what scenarios does adopted authorities enable? Cheers. Richard
