someone created a MS Form and embeded it on a sharepoint online page. The form is giving an error now but no one knows who created it and I can only find the URL to the form, nothing else.
How do I find the owner or take ownership so we can work on the form?

@Jason_B1025 if they embedded it on a SharePoint page then you can look at the version history of that page to find out who it was. Go to Site Pages and click the 3 dots next to the page and select Version History.

@RobElliott Thanks I was able to find out who created the form, it was a terminated employee.
I was able to reset the password and get into the account and see the form.
How do I move it to another user? When the termed employees account is deleted will the form be deleted too?

I was able to find this post about transferring ownership.
Because this users was disable, I had to re-enable and add back to AD groups. its been 24 hours but I still don't see any groups to move the form to :(
May have to open a MS ticket.... :(

@Jason_B1025 I was able to get the ID of the user with a bit of a hack. Here are sample steps:
-Access the form using this designer direct URL https://forms.office.com/Pages/DesignPage.aspx?origin=shell#FormId=<YourFormID>
-Inspect the network traces. You will find a request similar to this
-The ID in bold is the AAD ID of the user
-Use Graph Explorer - Microsoft Graph to run this request to retrieve the username and email address of the owner https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/<UserID>

@arthur26... The ID is the long value right after "FormID=" in the html link, but if you are not sure where it stops, you can get the ID by clicking Share on the form (if you are the owner/creator), then copy/paste the value to a note editor, there you would see the ID aftger "ResponsePage.aspx?id=". Hope this helps.

@MaciekPar just by looking at the screenshot it seems you might not have sufficient permissions to open the form in the form designer. I would also try to check the technical details for more insights. To confirm its a permission issue you can also ask a more privileged user (like an admin) to run the same URL and see if it works for them.
