Manage run-only permissions on Manually triggered flows.



I have a very complex business process based around SharePoint Doc Library that I am trying to handle using Power Automate. I am triggering a process and -  in order to keep the size and conditions within a single flow to a minimum - I am breaking up flows.  I am having a cluster of flows that are calling each other. What I am seeing is errors when I am trying publish a parent flow initially pointing to 'run-only' users of child flow. I am mitigating these errors by assigning run only users from dropdown but I am not understanding this fully(dropdown  seems to be tied to a connection - like "Mail') .  When I introduce an approver action, I am seeing cascading errors with regards to run only users again. Please help me understand this, and how should I handle 'run only' users, IF I know that security roles are already handled in SharePoint. I want users to be able to execute all workflow triggers automatically as if owner would. 


Why am I getting these errors when publishing and introducing approvals in child flows?


Thank you.
