Mass delete entries from data type

Hi Bubblers,

I want to delete 9000 entries in one of my data types, but i can only delete a few at a time, and it takes very long.
Is there any way to speed up the deletion process or select all 9000 entries at once?

I am willing to pay for plugins or any custom coding. Thanks!

No quick way yet, unfortunately.

The most efficient option is to create an API workflow with the delete block and ruin it over the table/view you need cleaned up via Bulk function in your App Data tab.

As the limit of time for a workflow is 5 minutes, you must have a bunch of them. You can also create a field ‘deleted’ and ignoring them (schedule list). You found the way or still erasing by hand? :slight_smile:

Any new solutions to this?

I have to delete around 1500 records and I can’t do it through the App Data tab Bulk function because I have to use constraints (ex. delete all records with x characteristic).

Send that list of Things to List Popper and do a recursive workflow over them.

(It’ll take about a second-ish per item.)

Hi man! I think I found a solution.

The constraint for the deletion was for the items to contain the word “copia”.

I typed “copia” into the search box filter in the App data tab so it filtered the things that I needed to delete.

Then I clicked on “Load 50 more items” many times, until the page showed the 1000+ items.

I selected all the visible items and clicked on the Delete button.

It showed me an error after a while but it is still deleting, so I guess it is working. Even if I turn my computer off it keeps deleting.

If for any reason this stops deleting, I’ll definitely try that plugin.

Thanks a lot!

Just wanted to leave here a workaround that I found for this. Check it out here:
