Hi Sandrine,

CreatedBy : It is the user who has created the record. This can not be changed. It is just a System Information to track who created the record.

OwnerId : ID of the User who has been assigned to work this record.
If you update this field, the previous owner's access becomes Read Only or the access specified in your organization-wide default for opportunities, whichever is greater.

OwnerId defines ownership and is used to give access to the user on the record in case that object access is set to private in your organization.


Thanks
