Multiple connections appearing in actions

As you can see in the image below, I have multiple connections appearing.  These appear for every SharePoint related action in all of my workflows.  I opened Connections under Data and discovered 8 SharePoint connections.  I was able to delete 6 of them because they were either not connected to any workflows or to obsolete ones.  However, this didn't change the situation.

Is this something I should be concerned about?  Why do I have multiples and how can I reduce the number to one?


Thanks,

Dave

The solution is to delete duplicate connections in the Connections area of Data.  Exit the Power Automate app.  Then relaunch the app.  The duplicate connections in the actions will be gone.

You can manage the connection in the Connections Tab

Please be very careful when deleting the connections.

Click on 'Details' and you need to check which Power Automate is using which connection.

Thank you for your response.  I have already deleted SharePoint connections in the Connections area.  I reduced the SP connections from 8 to 2.  However, it didn't affect the connections in the actions.

@DTooley So it seems that your other connections were not being used in the Flows. If everything is working then nothing to worry. 

The solution is to delete duplicate connections in the Connections area of Data.  Exit the Power Automate app.  Then relaunch the app.  The duplicate connections in the actions will be gone.

Maybe it's a new feature?

 

When you open a flow and you update the Connections panel, you can see a section for 'Other connections' that are not being used in the flow, you can delete those connexions from the flow. After you can delete the connections from Data > Connections.
