Delete Flow Trigger from Dynamics



We had a Flow that would trigger based on an entity update in Dynamics. We ran into some performance issues where a lot of updates were happening for this entity and it looked like Dynamics/Flow wasn't keeping up. When we dug deeper we found out that there are system jobs created for each of these update that calls Flow and that's where the bottleneck is happening. This also prevented other flows from kicking off from Dynamics because they were waiting on some resource and all these update triggers just fails and goes into a retry loop. We deleted the problematic flow and made sure there are no triggers for that entity but Dynamics is still trying to trigger a Flow when an update is made to that entity and it seem to be based on the Flow that we deleted.


Does anyone know a place in Dynamics where this trigger should be deleted from, so that it doesn't try to call a non-existent Flow?


Re: Delete Flow Trigger from Dynamics

I would recommend that you use the CDS Connector and update the trigger with "Attribute Filters". This will ensure the flow is triggered only on the update of a specific field (or fields) on the entity record. This should reduce the calls to flow and, hopefully, reduce the bottlenecks.

Re: Delete Flow Trigger from Dynamics

Thanks for your response. Actually the Flow itself has been deleted, so theoretically Dynamics shouldn't even be trying to trigger Flow. But we just see a bunch of system jobs in Dynamics that keep getting fired off for a non-existent trigger/Flow.
