I'm totally new to Flows. I'm trying to design a simple screen flow, that allows me to select a Lead and then delete it, along with associated Custom Object records in one go.

As of now, I need to delete the custom object records first and then the lead, in order to prevent orphaned records being left behind.

As a simple first step, I'm trying to use a lookup component to search for Leads. What I'm unsure of is to what to enter in the highlighted fields. enter image description here

All searches I've done seem to indicate that the lookup object does the lookup from an associated object. What I need is a simple Lead search.

How do I go about that?

Thank you.

You can try this approach:

Object API name: API Name of Child Object
Field API Name: The Lookup Field(Lead) API Name on Child Object

Instead of using the Field API Name of "Id", instead use "MasterRecordId". That fixed the problem for me!
