Delete failed flow from history

I have a flow submission that failed jan 28, this was due to too many char in the MS forms submission. The flow has successfully ran 50 times since this failed attempt, however I repeatedly now receive email notifications on this failure and unable to delete the flow.

 

searching the forum, this seems to be a consistent error with multiple ideas submitted to allow the end user to remove.

 

Is anyone aware of a way to remove this failed flow please?

Hello Starpiter,

 

I understand the goal is to remove the failed flow run from the history to avoid the notification about it.

 

Currently we do not have any functionality available to manage and subsequently delete the desired runs from the history. They will be retain for 30 days.

We appreciate your feedback and please note you can always add your idea on the portal below to suggest product changes you may think important to the product lifecycle.

@v-tiribe Are you implying it will at least stop notifying me after 30 days of the failure? It's annoying but if I know its a temporary annoyance, then that's something positive. Hopefully this will be fixed in the near future. Thanks!

The "Accepted Solution" is not a solution at all! You must create the functionality to allow a user to remove a failed flow IMMEDIATELY  after the user evaluates the flow in question and determines a solution. Besides the fact that the email is freaking irritating in that it says a flow has failed but DOES NOT IDENTIFY THE SPECIFIC CASE IN THE RUN LIST, now, multiple failures are in the list and only serve to add to the confusion. 

Seriously, how difficult can it be to allow a user to cancel or delete any flow in the run history?
