Running MS PowerAutomate from a central administrator account

Hello Power Automate Community,

 

I'm new to MS PowerAutomate and I've started to build some workflows. I realise that all the flows created by me are under my account. I assume if I'm away or exit the organisation, these flows cannot be looked at by anyone else.

 

Is there a way to build these from a central administrator account? What are the best practices for building and running flows from a central place? What are the implications on connections etc.?

 

I've tried the 'Share' feature, but it asks me to give access to my MS Outlook to the person the flow is being shared with. I'm not sure I want to do that.

 

I'd appreciate it if anyone can shed some light on this for me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Setup a Service Account and assign it an O365 License - Have a look at  - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/power-automate-licensing/faqs#i-have-multiple-... 

 

Once you create a service account, you can change the owner of your existing flow with reference to - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/change-cloud-flow-owner
