We use   ‘List Record’   action on an entity to retrieve multiple records . By default, This action retrieves maximum of   512   records. The flow would run successfully even if we have more records, but, it will return only the first 512 and   skip other records . We came across this scenario and we didn’t realize that it is skipping records. Later , we adjusted the setting to resolve this issue. Here are the steps. if we have premium plan like power apps plan 1, power apps plan 2 and other, we can increase the limit up to   100000.  By default,   Pagination   is off. Switch it on and adjust the limit. As you can see above, ...
