Can we update Created By using Power Automate?

Copper Contributor

Hi Team


I have 2 SharePoint Lists , List1 and List2


Using Power Automate, I am creating an entry in List2 when an item is created in List1.


Created By for List2 item is always a connection which I use in the flow. 


I want to show Created By of List2 item as the original creator (Created By of List1).


Thanks in advance.

Hi @MadhusudanShettyMS 


To my knowledge, I'm not sure there is a way to do that as Power Automate will use the flow account holders attributes for the Created by.


As a workaround, you could try a Single line column (e.g. Created_by) in List 2 and have the original (List 1) Created by put into the List 2 Created_by. Save the view with the column to ensure you see it consistently.


Hope something in there gives you some ideas.


Cheers and best wishes
