"Create File" action makes file inherit Created by and Modified by from Flow Creator

"Create File" action makes file inherit Created by and Modified by from Flow Creator when it should be from the User who tiggers the flow.  Anyone figure out how to either use the Connectors as the tigger initiator, or to transfer the Created and Modified by fields to the newly created file?

Hi @rarroyo 

 

Yes these fields are created automatically by SharePoint and something that is the expected value, since they are using your connection to SharePoint.

 

The only way to achieve this is for you to share the Flow as a copy or a template so that they can import and add their own connections and therefore add them when they run the Flow.

 

See more details here:
