Will the "Change Owner" Flow Step Change Account Owner?

Hello!

Background: We recently had Marketo open up the account field level edit access so that we can use Marketo to update fields on the SFDC Account object.

Goal: We want to run a clean up campaign to change the lead/contact owner from former employees to current ones.

Question: Since we have the account level edit open, will the "change owner" flow step change account owner as well? If so, how do we make sure we ONLY change lead/contact owner.

Thanks, everyone!

The change owner flow step will only change the lead/contact owner.  It isn't configured to change account owners.

Hi Lia,

More broadly, Marketo cannot change any account data.

Thanks, Kenny! This still hold true even if Marketo opened up the account edit access for us, correct?

Correct.  Change owner isn't a standard write operation, but a specific implementation, so this doesn't change how it works.
