Run Flow as connector

When I create a flow and use action such as "SharePoint - create file", it's using my login as the connector and hence I become the created By of the file. Is there a way to change such that it's the user who triggers the flow, not me who created this flow? It should be dynamic, not static user.

Hi jleung,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

I am afraid that it is currently a default behavior for Flow. I have seen similar request at Flow ideas Forum, please vote and comment the idea at here:

I will help collect and report it on my side.
