Can I export a filtered table view

I am using "views" to created a filtered list of orphaned records (they do not have a corresponding record in an intermediary table). This works well & I can view this list within a gallery in PowerApps.

I would like to delete these occurrences.

Is there a way to export the list created by this table "view"? Or any other way I can delete these records beside creating a delete button in PowerApps & sitting there for hours clicking "delete."

Thanks!

Hi @Medoomi,

 

Unfortunately you can't choose a view in bulk delete job, you have to replicate the same conditions that your view has.

 

Apologies, you are correct that the data tab in maker portal doesn't have a select all option. The equivalent would be using advanced find (click the gear > Advanced Settings > this opens legacy D365 interface and from there you can launch advanced find)

 

You can also look at the Bulk Delete Tool which is an Xrmtoolbox community plugin. It allows you to bulk delete based on views.

Hi @Medoomi,

 

If the amount of records, to delete is large (hundreds or thousands), then I'd suggest using a bulk deletion job. The process to do this is outlined below.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/delete-bulk-records

 

If it's just a few hundred or less of one specific table, you can do this in the PowerApps maker portal (make powerapps.com).

  • Select your environment
  • Navigate to tables, then select your specific table.
  • Go to the data tab. 
  • Change the view to the one you've mentioned. 
  • Select the radio button on the header row to select all records. 
  • Click delete records. 

 

If you are familiar with Advanced find, you can also select your table from there and the view you created and mass delete thay way too.

Thanks so much @ChrisPiasecki 

 

Just to clarify, I couldn't find a way in a bulk deletion job (in Dynamics), to select a filtered view of my table. It seemed I could only accomplish basic matching eg. column name = value.

Is there a way to do a bulk deletion job for the records that match a filtered view of a table?

 

Also, when I navigate to the powerapps maker portal & the Data tab & view I need, I can't find a radio button on the header to select all records. Is there a way to select all records, instead of each one individually?

 

For reference, the last time I needed to delete the records in this view, I had 9,500 records, so yes, a large amount of data.

 

thx!
