In my previous blog post ‘Bulk Delete assets in Microsoft Purview with Power Automate flow‘ I wrote how to automate the bulk delete of assets in Microsoft Purview. While I was building and testing the flow, I found out by navigating Microsoft Purview that it is possible to start a bulk delete of assets in the user interface itself.
If you navigate to the level of SQL Server instance then the deletion of this entity type will delete the child items as well. Somehow this is not (clearly) documented in Microsoft Learn. Anyway good to know.
