Why does flow owner's name show after request by field in every approval?

Dear all


Why does flow owner's name show after request by field in every approval?

I don't think this is documented, but I would guess it's to avoid impersonation or trickery. This way, Power Automate makes sure that the other person always knows the logged-in person that made the request.


Again, I don't know if this is the reason, and probably other members have a better explanation.
