Can an admin 'fix' another user's connection ?

Hi, is it possible for an admin to 'fix' other user's connection issues e.g. after a password change/etc ?  I have a bunch of non-techy users with locked down tablets and the flows I set up for them (using office 365 outlook/office 365 users connections) fail after a password change or if not used for a while.

 

I'd be interested in hearing how others deal with this sort of thing

Hey @SteveUK 

 

You will not be able to fix the connections if you are not a co owner of the flow. Now if you fix those connections, you will definitely need the passwords for the respective connections and appropriately authenticate those. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Many thanks @yashag2255  so even though I am co-owner it is the user password that is the sticking point (asking for a password negates security).  So I assume that any Flow that requires user credentials is not maintainable by anyone other than the user, which makes it pretty much non-deployable to any user that is not tech-savvy.  It's a shame that Flow doesn't implement persistent AAD credential connections as any password policy to improve security breaks Flow.
