Power Automate: Use Service Principal

Let’s talk about Power Automate and how to use the Service Principal account to run your Power Automate jobs?

Why do we need Service Principal? Let suppose you have created a background automation which is using Common Data Service (CDS) triggers or actions, so its better to use service principal rather than to a specific user (because specific user may leave the company, his account can be disabled).

Following is the 3 steps guide with reference:-
