Managing flow history

Dear,

 

Currently there is no way to clear the flow history,

Even if the flow is already deleted you will see i.e. the failures.

In production environments it is better to have a way to clean-up the failure list to have a clear view on what is going on.

 

It would also be really usefull to be able to query the flow history using date/time, flow, etc. as filter values.

 

Kind regards,

MehrdadG

Hello, as called out in the comments, this is an import audit feature of the system so that all activities that a Flow has taken are fully audited. Even if you are just testing something out, that test flow can still have real side-effects that must remain in an audit for the 30 days that history is currently retained for. 

 

That being said, it does make sense to allow certain runs to be marked as "Resubmitted" so that you can keep track, after a failure, if something has been rerun. Likewise, querying the run history is a good idea as well.

Level: Powered On

One way to clear the flow run history is to export the flow into a package (download it), delete the original flow, import the package. Its imported with no run history.

 

Not ideal but it works !

Indeed, I am learning some PowerApps and already have a truckload of test logs on my history...
