We have inserted 50k duplicate data how can i detect and delete the records in dynamics 365?
When i tried duplicate detection rules it says as per the below SS.
Please see the below two links which will help you to resolve your issue:

Link 2 - docs.microsoft.com/.../run-bulk-system-jobs-detect-duplicate-records
Please let me know if these links were helpful for you to resolve your issue.
I would suggest that you first find all duplicate records through XrmToolBox, then merge or delete part of them, and wait until there are less than 5000 duplicates, you can ues OOB delete duplicate records feature.
Alternatively, narrow down the scope of the duplicate detection rule, first find duplicate records within 5000, delete them, and then find other duplicate records and delete them.
Deduplicator for XrmToolBox
Deduplicator helps you find duplicated records in Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE / CRM with ability to overcome CRM limitations.
This is the download page of XrmToolBox: https://www.xrmtoolbox.com/
After downloading and unzipping it, open 'XrmToolBox.exe'.
Contact it to your D365 organization. At Tool Libarary, install 'Deduplicator'.
First Load Entities, then select Entity and fields, finally Find duplicates.
Thank you so much for your response.
Using XRM Toolbox i found the duplicate records. There are around 35000 records duplicated. How do i delete the duplicate one?
Since 35000 records are too many, you have to take another solution, which is to reduce the scope of duplicate detection.
Detect less than 5000 records at a time and delete them, execute them in batches.
1. First, create a personal view of the entity that need to delete duplicate records, set the filter of the view a liiter more strictly, that is you need to control the number of records in this view to be around 5000 or slightly more than 5000.
Use Advanced Find to quickly create personal views.
Then, repeatedly create personal views, the filtering of each personal view should be different, and control the number of records in this view to be around 5000, until all personal views contain all records of the entity.
In this case, we divide the huge number records in one view into the appropriate number of records in multipe personal views.
Then run bulk system jobs to detect duplicate records on these personal views.
In this way, the scope of detect duplication is reduced to a single personal view and the detection result must be less than 5000 records, so they will be successfully deleted.
Then run bulk system jobs to detect duplicate records on these personal views, create bulk system jobs multipe times, selecting a different personal view each time.
Here are the relevant documents for reference.
