Do you want to clear out or remove unused connectors in Power Automate?
Connectors are the building blocks for creating flows, and managing them can be a key task for any company’s data retention and security policy.
Removing unused connectors will declutter your connection list as well as prevent any unnecessary security risks.
This article will show you the steps to clean up your connectors and delete those you’re no longer using.
Find All Apps and Flows That Use a Connection
Before you clear out all connectors in Power Automate, you need to find all the apps and flows that use each connection.
This way you can determine which connections can safely be removed without interrupting critical business processes.
Here’s how you can check if a connection is currently being used.
- Go to the Connections menu in the Power Automate portal.
- Click on the Ellipses menu for the connections.
- Select the Details option from the menu.
This will take you to the Detail screen for the connection.
- Click on either the Apps using this connection tab or the Flows using this connection tab to see what apps and flows are using the connection.
If no apps or flows are listed, you can safely remove the connection without worry.
This can be a tedious process to check each connection, but there is a slightly quicker method than using the Details screen.
It turns out you can select the Delete option in the Ellipses menu to view any apps or flows that use the connection. This opens a warning menu where the connection is used and you can either Cancel or proceed to Delete the connection.
