Flow to post to a team I am not a member of

Hi, As a system administrator, the senior management team have asked me to write a flow that triggers a post to their team when a file is added / updated in their sharepoint site.  I have done this and temporarily added myself as a member of their site / team to test.  It is posting as a Flow Bot to the team.  However this fails to run as soon as I remove my permissions to their site / team.  How do other organisations get around this?  Obviously I don't want to have to be a member of hundreds of teams just because they need a flow writing nor is it appropriate that I do... 
Sharing a flow doesn't seem to do very much unless the connections are updated by another user and asking the CEO to do this seems a bit unrealistic.

Re: Flow to post to a team I am not a member of



In order to post a message you need to be a member of that team. Why not create a service account and see if that works. Of course you need to assign the same account as a member in all teams.
