Delete bulk records

Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem, CRM Online

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases.]

The bulk deletion feature helps you to maintain data quality and manage the consumption of system storage in Microsoft Dynamics CRM by deleting data that you no longer need.

For example, you can delete the following data in bulk:

  • Stale data.

  • Data that is irrelevant to the business.

  • Unneeded test or sample data.

  • Data that is incorrectly imported from other systems.

With bulk deletion you can perform the following operations:

  • Delete data across multiple entities.

  • Delete records for a specified entity.

  • Receive email notifications when a bulk deletion finishes.

  • Delete data periodically.

  • Schedule the start time of a recurring bulk delete.

  • Retrieve the information about the failures that occurred during a bulk deletion.

  1. Go to Settings > Data Management. (How do I get there?)

  2. Choose Bulk Record Deletion.

  3. Choose New to run the Bulk Deletion Wizard to create a bulk deletion job with the records you want to delete.

For information about how to implement bulk delete in code, see SDK: Delete data in bulk.
