Any equivalent to SP2010's "Impersonation Step" in Power automate/Flow?


I created permission lockdown flow, where i need to set read permission once approver approved. If i kept approver in owner's group then its working, but when i put approver in Edit/Contribute group its failing. Getting below error message


"Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

What trigger are you using for the Flow? I assume it's a selected item or manual button. If you create the Flow with an automated trigger then it will run in the context of the maker, not the approver. The maker will normally have more permissions to the list.  Can you provide a screens hot or description so we can help redesign it so it will work without impersonation
