Delete all elements from sharepoint

Hello!

 

I made a flow that supposedly deletes all the elements from a sharepoint list, however it only deletes the first 100 elements, can somebody explain it to me why?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hello @LeventeH ,

I guess you're using the 'Get items' action to get all the items to delete, that action has a default limit 100 items. You should manually increase it to up to 5000 by defining the 'Top Count' value.

Thank you! I will test it, the funny thing is, that the Top Count says that by default it retrieve all the entries 😅
