if I will call flow on create or update event, it will be called in context of user who will create the request or in context of user who has created the flow.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Flows will be triggered on context who create it . Unfortunately we can not set created/modified fields based on who triggers flow. 

There is already idea posted on forum for this feature requirement.

Hey @Anonymous 

 

 

The Flow will run from the user who has created the Flow, you can check that by clicking on the ellipsis of the trigger and under Connections you will see the email address of the user who created the Flow.

 

A Flow that will run in a user context is mostly a Flow where you can add Run-Only Users.

 

Hope this helps

 

Kind regards

 


Tom

if flow will be called in the context of user has created it. How it will calculate api limit. there is 2000 daily api limit per user

 

 

Hey @Anonymous 

 

 

You could make a scheduled Flow that just updates all the items at a given date and time.

That way you don't run the Flow for a single item. 

 

Do you call an API in your Flow?

What do you want to achieve with your Flow, could you give us some more information about the problem you are facing?

 

Every calculation is handled in the background and, in my experience, we don't have a clear view on how it calculates any limit.

 

Hope this helps 

 

Kind regards

 

Tom
