what identity does flow run as

Hi, 

I have a flow that runs whenever an item is updated in a sharepoint list. Does that flow run with priveleges of the user that published the flow or the priveleges of the user that modified the item?

Re: what identity does flow run as

@RussellGove:

 

Flows run AS the user who's connection was used for the action.

 

So, if you update a SharePoint list item, the item will show as being updated by the user who was specified in the connection for the Update item action.

 

This is similar in concept to a SharePoint Designer 2010 style workflow impersonation step.
