Flow Auto Notification from Microsoft

I joined a company where I inherited a lot of flows created by a person who was working here before me. Unfortunately he created everything in his name.

I changed all the connections to use the Service account. However if the flow fails or if I change the flow using a service account, he still gets an email. Is there a way to change the default email Microsoft sends every week to go to a security group?


I know there isn't a way to change the owner of the flow but would love to hear the workarounds you have for these scenarios.

@Lana did you remove his connection references from all flow ? Go to flow connections, view all - remove any connections related to earlier user

Will that stop sending emails to his email address? Is there a way to send any flow failures to a security group?

@Lana yes, if in connections his name is not there it will stop sending emails to him and obviously his name is not in "To" of send email action.


Yes you can send email to security group when flow fails, you can either implement try,catch,finally


or you could just configure run after conditions(this is short and simple)
