Flows running that are not in My FLows or in Solutions

I have flows that are sending emails to a user group when an Planner task has been completed.

 

The e-mails are being send from my current flow and from an older flow does not appear on My Flows or in existing Solutions (two e-mails are being sent).  I know that because the subject and body of the emails are different.  I need to find the older flow and delete it.  Where else are flows being stored other than My Flows and Solutions?

Have you checked Team Flows and Business Process Flows tabs too?  Flows that have been shared will show up in Team flows instead of My Flows.

 

The other possibility is that their are existing instances running from a flow that you deleted.  I'm not sure how you can find them after you delete the flow definition.  But they will stop eventually when the instance times out.

Thanks for the response.  They are not in Teams or Business Process Flows. 

 

"The other possibility is that their are existing instances running from a flow that you deleted" - I did not know that was possible.  

So, I look in all activity, I see some of the flows that are running.  When click on one of them to delete.  It says "workflow With Id = 0c1f9ed7-05ed-e911-a812-000d3a300a53 Does Not Exist

Again, this flow GPM_067... is currently not in My Flows, Team Flows or solutions.  I believe this flow was deleted.  But according to the activity, it was running as of 2 hours ago.

What shows up in the Flow tabs are the flow definitions.  What you are finding is the flow instances.  Instances that were previously started continue to run even after the definition is deleted.  As I said, I'm not sure there is a way to delete them manually after the definitions have been deleted.

@Pstork1- Thank you much. 

 

There has to be a better way.  I duplicates emails being sent out, Planner tasks being created with different due dates. 

 

It sucks for us.  Not good at all.

I mean we have multiple flows running in the background that were previously deleted and we can't stop them from running.  And there is nothing we can do about it?

Understood, but I'm not sure there is anything you can do at this point other than get support involved.  Assuming there is a next time, just make sure you delete all the running instances before deleting the definition.

Ok - Thank you very much.  Will contact support.

Hey @augustine2 

 

There is one other thing you can try out in the meanwhile: 

 

If you do not have many flows, export the one that you are currently using. Then follow the steps:

If you exactly know the flow name that is causing the issue, then you can directly use the delete flow action, select the environment and the flow and delete it. 

Hope this Helps!

Thank you for you response.  Unfortunately I have over 30 instances of flows that have deleted running in the background.  I tried to add condition action inside Apply To Each, where if Value contains CLW_, then delete flows.  But, I was not successful.  I wish there was a way to delete multiple flows, instead one by one as your flow example shows.
