Share image to Flow app on Android

Hi everyone!

 

I built a very simple flow to quickly upload images to a fixed Sharepoint folder, with the option to add a comment, and I include the display name of the user in the filename. Run from within the Flow app, it works fine.

 

However, when I browse the image from the gallery and share it to the flow app/button, the user name reported to the flow changes to the creator of the flow, instead of the one who triggered it.

 

Is there a workaround to this issue, or should it be reported as a bug?

 

Any tips are highly appretiated.

Hi @manuelstgomes 

 

Thank you for your answers.

 

I did manage to make it work eventually.

 

What I learned is that the 'Get my profile' action worked the way I described (and still does). I changed it to 'Get user profile', connecting the user email output from the trigger. It works as intended, regardless of how I run the flow.

Hi @LászlóHurda 

 

Power Automates should work the same way since they are using the same connections. The app is just triggering it.

 

I think it's a bug.
