What I did, as user A:
Ran the canvas app as user B, hit the same button:
However, the record's created by columns shows User A (instead of user B). I would need User B to show as record creator.
Is my expectation wrong and this is just not possible with Powerapp triggered cloud flows, or am I missing something?
Also, I found this encouraging post Power Automate impersonation, but it didn't provide any specific solution that I could apply.
Hi @fcavelti ,
This is a known issue, and you have done it correctly. Indeed, you will need to change the connection used to "provided by run-only user". Currently, saving this configuration is not possible, you can test it on your environment. Indeed the value will automatically return to the connection of the flow owner.
Fortunately, Microsoft has announced the support of connections for the Dataverse connector during wave 1 2022, and normally this feature will be supported during the current month:
Hi @melamri - thank you for confirming the issues I stumbled on.
I'm surprised the community didn't seem to have a big issue with this behavior, honestly. But definitely looking forward to MS' release with the new feature.
