Drupal 10: Remove all menu items from the site programmatically

drupal entities

During a migration of the content and testing the functionality, we are playing a lot with adding/removing menu items for nodes.

Here's a snippet on how to delete all links in a menu.

// Need to replace 'sidebar-menu' menu name value with own name.
$mids = \Drupal::entityQuery('menu_link_content')
      ->condition('menu_name', 'sidebar-menu')
$controller = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage('menu_link_content');
$entities = $controller->loadMultiple($mids);
