Watch this short video to learn how the Kandji connector in Workflow helps with Apple device management:
The video features Arek Dreyer. Arek is a Senior Product Engineer at kandji.io, which provides next-generation Apple device management for macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS. Arek spent over 20 years as an independent trainer, author, and consultant, and in 2021 he joined Kandji. He was super happy to discover the community of admins that love helping each other solve problems in the Okta Workflows space.

Count number of rows in a table
To count the number of rows in a table use Tables – Search Rows to search a table without a condition. This will return all the rows (see a note at the end about this). Then, use List – Length card to return the number of items in the list.
This is a simple solution. It will work up to the limit of the search rows card:
Maximum number of records to return. If a filter or limit is not applied to the table search, a maximum of 3,500 rows from the selected table will be read by the Search Rows function card.https://help.okta.com/wf/en-us/Content/Topics/Workflows/function-reference/Tables/stash_searchrows2.htm
This is a good solution if a table has less than 3,500 records.
Here is a solution from Tim LaBorn (Senior Technical Support Engineer for Workflows at Okta) if you have more than 3,500 records:
The table itself has a maximum of 100k rows. It is possible to return a list of all rows but that would take considerably more logic than the example provided. The search Rows card has the ability to set an offset. You could potentially make a Helper flow that search a table in a loop growing by the offset value you are using while combining lists until the search rows returns no results then stops the loop. The final combined table could then have the length used against it to get the total count.https://support.okta.com/help/s/question/0D54z000082Z1ndCAC/workflows-function-to-return-the-number-of-rows-in-a-table?language=en_US
