How to stop file showing modified by me when changing Content Type

Curious question - I have a flow triggered once someone uploads a new file to a specific folder. The flow then adds the correct Content Type defined for that folder. Is it possible to have the newly uploaded file NOT show as also modified by ME after the flow triggers and changes the file? Or is this always required for version history/audit? Just wondering if flows with files I make can expect to always show me as modifying the file.

Hello @chazzworth 

 

I assume you are using an automatic Trigger, in that case that  it is not possible to identify the user that triggered the Power Automate (for e.g. when an file is created or modified etc). It will be recorded as  you modify the file in the Power Automate then it will save the last modified person that will be the Automate creator.

 

Instead of using your account you can use a Service account, in that the audit logs will show the service account name instead of your name.
