I oversee my office's Sharepoint and own all of the power automated flows, but I am leaving my job in a few weeks. I don't want to leave them high and dry once I leave so I need to figure out how to transfer ownership of all of the flows to another employee so they still function after I leave. How do?

    Hi @Christopher Diachok ,

    You can change the owner of the flow.

    An owner, co-owner, or an admin can change the owner of a solution-aware flow to another user to ensure business continuity. After the change of ownership completes, the original owner and the new owner both become co-owners of the flow.

    You can change the owner to an individual (not a distribution list) or a user account used as a service account. If the flow uses a service account, ensure it's licensed correctly to avoid multiplexing.

    Follow these steps to change the owner of a flow.

    1. Sign in to Power Automate.
    2. On the menu to the left, select Solutions.
    3. Select the solution that contains the flow you want to change.
    4. Select the flow for which you're changing the owner.
    5. In the Details section, select Edit
    6. In the Owner section, remove the current owner.
    7. Enter the email address of the new owner.

    Hi Yanli,

    Apologies for the delayed reply. When I click Solutions, it appears to populate all solutions from users at my company but I was not able to locate mine as there were too many solutions to look through. I was able to add someone else as an Owner to each individual flow when I clicked on the details for each flow, however, so problem solved!
