Hi @GUOGUO  

 

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.

 

Cheers

Manuel
