Flow Connections

Hello,

 

I've started creating a few flows for a SharePoint intranet site that a few people use. I use the "Office 365 Users", "Office 365 Outlook" and a "SharePoint" connection within my flow and it's being used in a SharePoint list for a selected item.

 

My question is, and this might sound stupid, but how do I have the connections not run as me but the user that started the flow?

I'm having problems wrapping my head around this so the phrasing of the question might be off.

 

Would it be best to create and share flows with a user that doesn't belong to a person? For example, create a user named "flow", give it a licence and create flows with that.

 

Thanks in advance.

@TommyHotvedt:

 

You really have two options:

  1. Export the Flow and have the users each import the Flow and provide their credentials upon import.  This is likely not a practical solution.
  2. Have an account created for this purpose and assign it licenses.  Create Flows using that users credentials for the connections.

If this answers your question, please mark your Flow as Solved.

Re: Flow Connections

Thank you for the clarification. I'll go with an account purely for flows.
