How do run-only users start the flow?

I am creating a flow for the project team.

The flow checks the Excel sheet saved in OneDrive and writes its contents to the SharePoint list.

I don't want members to edit the flow, so I want to specify it as a run-only user.
I have experimentally registered a one of colleague as a run-only user, but I don't see that flow in My Flow on his PowerAutomate portal.

He was able to access it from the invitation email.
In addition, the button was also displayed on mobile Automate Apps.

They use only PCs, not mobiles.
In this case, how do you start the flow from the Automate portal?

@irwindale1 I was able to replicate the same scenario, when I give run-only user I can't find the flow but when I add the user as owner then I am able to see. Also in run-only user I was able to access via email only. 

I think this is the expected behavior and is correct. Please see this :

 

https://www.serverlessnotes.com/docs/sharing-flows-as-owners-and-run-only-users

Sharing a flow with Run only users is a great way to share your flow logic When sharing a flow using this mode, users can run your flow, but do not have access to modify it or browse Run History

 

With this said, the users with said permissions can't run flow from portal but only via link in email.

Hi @jinivthakkar 
Yes, of course.
It wasn't there. Only those with "owner" privileges are displayed.
