How to make flow to use connection instead of connection reference

Hi all,

I am having issue migrating flow to production. 

The import fails with  message 'Principal with id xxxxxxxxxxx does not have WriteAccess right(s) for record with id xxxxxxxxxxxxxx of entity connectionreference' .


I think the importing user doesn't have permission to write to entity connectionreference in Dataverse. 


As a workaround, I would like to revert to using simple connections in the flow instead of Connection reference. 

is this possible?

I wouldn't recommend that.


Instead you should use a user with enough privileges to do the deployment.

Ideally you would use Azure Devops with an app registration instead of a user, so you don't need to give away too many permissions to users.
