I'm trying to make sense of this page and need help. If I want to use a "premium connector" in a specific flow (ex. Salesforce.com) - does only the author of the flow need to be on Flow Plan1/2 OR does both the author and every user of that specific flow need to have that?

Both the app creator and consumer will need to have a P1 or P2 license.

@Daniel Laskewitz I'm checking around internally for verification. The latest threads I've seen have some nuance to them. The most straightforward answer I see is that whichever user / account is used for the connection to the Premium Connector requires the Plan 1 / 2 license. Not simply a matter of the author vs. flow executor.
If User A authors a flow and uses their own credentials (User A) for the connection and then User B uses the flow (still with User A credentials tied to the connection for Premium Connector) then only User A needs a Plan 1 / 2 license.
If however User A authors a flow and User B uses their own credentials in the connection for Premium Connector then User B needs to have a Plan 1 / 2 license.
Hoping to get someone from Flow PG to comment / verify on here, stay tuned.

Use of "service accounts" in many platform integrations can bring challenges in terms of security management and compliance with licensing agreements with various software vendors. Always use caution when recommending/implementing this in platform projects to avoid to expose your client to risks.
Also when a user will want to use a premium connector configured by admins, he will be asked to authenticate to connect to the other service (e.g. Sales Force, Service Now, etc, …) Not sure IT Admin will want to share service accounts credentials.

This continues to be very murky and unclear. For IT managed automation scenarios, I have abandoned Flow for these reasons and switched almost completely to Azure Logic Apps. There it is very clear and feels more like an enterprise solution (even though both use the same underlying engine).

If I read the following article it seems like the users are the ones that has to have the P1 or P2 license, not the maker?
