Flow Deleting old Versions on Sharepoint

Good day,

 

I have to run a flow each day to update datas. When I run them a new Version of the document is always created.

I have around 24 GB of Datas, Each File multiplied by 100. 
So I have 1,4 TB of data and my Storage is full.

 

MY QUESTION: Does anybody know how to delete all old Versions of a File in Sharepoint as it is not possible to set Versions to a lower Number then 100

 

Thanks

Hi @mardex,

 

Please refer to the following steps to delete the old versions of each file in the SharePoint library:

 

Step 1: Add Get files(properties only) action to get files in the list.

Step 2: Add Send an HTTP request to SharePoint

Method: GET
Uri: _api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Dynamic content of Folder Path')/Files('Dynamic content of File name with extension')/Versions

Annotation 2019-08-29 150852.pngStep 3: Parse JSON, put the body of the previous action into the Content of Parse JSON action, then click the button "Use sample payload" to generate schema to paste the following schema:

{
"type": "object",
"properties": {
"d": {
"type": "object",
"properties": {
"results": {
"type": "array",
"items": {
"type": "object",
"properties": {
"__metadata": {

"type": "string"

"Size",
"Url",
"VersionLabel"
]
}
}
}
}
}
}

Step 4: Create the other Send an Http request to SharePoint:

Method: DELETE
Uri: _api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Dynamic content of Folder Path')/Files('Dynamic content of File name with extension')/Versions(ID from the previous action)

Please have a try, I hope it can help you.

@mardex 

To delete old versions, you'll need to use the SharePoint HTTP action and call a SharePoint web service.  I can't provide the specifics, but that's the route you'll need to go.  Another way to approach this might be to create a new document (based on the old document including metadata) and delete the old one rather than updating the existing documents in your Flow.

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

thanks, I expected this. So it will be a hell of work for me as a non professional Smiley Sad

Hi there,

 

Is it possible to set this up to on-demand remove all of the previous versions in a selected folder only, rather than daily automation for the whole library?

 

I would like to be able to select a project folder within a library once that project is completed, delete all the previous versions, keeping only the final files and then mark all files in that folder as read only so that no new versions are created if people then go and look at the files as reference for another project.

 

Many thanks

 

Chris

Many thanks

This is exactly what I am looking for, do you have more details you can provide on this or a video you can point me to on how to create this flow?  When I create the Uri there is no dynamic content to choose from.  It seems some steps are missing.  What trigger do you use?  I tried using scheduled once a week.  Also is there a way to keep say 5 versions?

PnP PowerShell should become your fried if it is not already.  There a ton of good resources available to answer you requirements or get you headed in the right direction.  Salaudeen Rajack at https://www.sharepointdiary.com/ is an outstanding resource.  He has been very generous in sharing many PnP scripts to accomplish a task, and all of them can be adjusted to do more or less, or become very granular.

 

Hop over to https://www.sharepointdiary.com/ and search for "delete versions" or Google it.  I've modified the available scripts for date ranges, file types, selection by user, operations on specific folders and more.

 

First thing I did was to set max versions to the minimum of 100 in the SharePoint admin center.  100 is as low as they allow you to go.  It would be fantastic if MS would reduce the number to something more reasonable.

 

Next thing was to delete all version of any image file (JPG, TIFF etc.)  There is a script at https://www.sharepointdiary.com/ to delete all versions.  Just modify it for the file type or file extension you want to delete all versions for.

 

Next verify you users are okay to retain 1, 2, 5, 10 versions of an MS Office file type or extension, then modify and run the available script to delete all but "x" number of versions for that file type.  I got rid of many PPTX, DOCX and XLSX version.  Some of the PPTX and DOCX are huge files.

 

Use use an image size reducing app to shrink your pictures, then go back and delete the picture versions.  Irfanview is a great free tool for shrinking images.

 

Have your users reduce the size their PowerPoint files.  The go back and delete old versions again with PS PnP.

 

Once you have your PS scripts tuned they way you need them, schedule them to run daily/weekly/monthly.

 

SharePoint Flows are good but can be a challenge to get right.  For me, PowerShell scripting and automation is the way to go.  Much more intuitive and flexible.  There isn't too much you cannot accomplish with PS.

 

Oh yeah, keep your Recycle Bin and Secondary Recycle Bin emptied on a schedule.  Yes, there is a PS script for that.

 

I recovered 700+ GB by doing the things listed above, and significantly reduced my personal workload by automating with PS.

I was asked where I found the max versions setting.

 

Document library settings cog in upper-right > Library Settings > More Library settings > Versioning settings.

 

Additional info can be found at SharePoint Online: Set Versioning Limit using PowerShell - SharePoint Diary

Hi I am running into an issue when following this example. When i create a library with a few files for testing it worked. When i revert back to the main task of deleting old versions from a library with subfolders i keep being told file error. Am i missing a trick with a setting when it is for a large library?

Many thanks for you help

Assuming you are trying to delete versions with PowerShell and PnP from a library with more than 5k items...  There is a limit to how many items that can be retrieved at one time.  The -PageSize flag to limit the number of items retrieved per-page to less than the 5000-item limit enforced by SharePoint, which cannot be changed.  I usually limit to 2k items per page, which works 99% of the time.  In rare cases where 2k still causes problems I drop it to 500.

Here is a basic example script that deletes all versions for JPG images, modified within the last 60-days, and edited by a particular user.

Hi! [EDITED]

 

After a lot of struggle I found a missing "'" :p.

 

solved!

Method: DELETE
Uri: _api/web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Dynamic content of Folder Path')/Files('Dynamic content of File name with extension')/Versions(ID from the previous action)

 

This flow is just perfect... but i got a 401 issue on deleting :

{
  "status": 401,
  "message": "401 UNAUTHORIZED\r\nclientRequestId: 67076abb-1ed1-47db-acef-e9df883f2a3e\r\nserviceRequestId: e421a0a0-90aa-6000-414e-4a752a53cc81",
  "source": "https://XXXXXXXXX.sharepoint.com/sites/XXXXXXXX/')/Files('XXXXXXXX.pptx')/Versions(512)",
  "errors": []
}

 

I'm the owner of the Sharepoint... anf of the sharepoint librairy... 😥

Thanks for your advices !

This works awesome for jpg files. How can I make it do all files in a site not just jpg files?

Is there a way to apply this only to files which haven't been used vor let's say 100 days?

 

Thanks!

Can anyone help me build a flow with this exact function but for OneDrive for Business?

hello, I'm following this example but....

 

the result of the evaluation of 'foreach' expression '@body('Analize_JSON')?['properties']?['d']?['properties']?['results']' is of type 'Null'. The result must be a valid array.

 

 

Hello, I'm having some trouble with this procedure. I get an error on the second 'Send an HTTP request'. Please see the attachment for the error. Would greatly appreciate any assistance.
