Hey Mate,

 

A flow turns into an orphaned flow when it does not have a valid owner anymore. This often happens when the creator or owner of the flow has left the organization and there is no co-owner. If the flow uses connections that require authentication, then it may start failing because the user identity is not valid anymore.

 

Admins can maintain continuity on the business process automated by the flow by adding one or more co-owners to it. Co-owners basically have full control over the flow just like the original owner, and can fix authentication for connections if any and enable the flow if it has been disabled.

@skolisetti 

The best approach is to create any flows inside a solution

Navigate to: make.powerapps.com 

Create a solution and Create the flows from inside the solution, this will enable you to move it across environments and will not be tied to a single user.
