Run flow against already existing records in Dynamics 365 CE



I created a flow that triggers when "a record is created". All is going well, however, I have huge amount of existing records that I also want to pass through the flow. I know I can't run it as an on-demand workflow. What are my options?


Thanks for your help in advance

See the official Process a list of items documentation, also known as "Apply to Each." You could run the Flow in batches using date filtering with logical expressions, and trigger it however you'd like. You could have the batch trigger manually via a button, or trigger via an email, or have it run on a schedule or timed interval, or when an object is created or updated - it is up to you. You aren't limited by simply the Dynamics triggers

Hi @SvenVa ,

It seems you want get all the records of one entity in Dynamics 365, then use the data in your flow.

I suggest you use the 'List records' action of Dynamics 365 connector, then use the apply to each from the value.
