I want to create a flow to clear all recent apps before locking my device. Any help? How can I create?

It heavily depends on your phone. There are two ways to do it currently.
1. to use Control UI and automatically tap the recent button, such as in here. But you can't use the same script, it is different in each phone. You have to create it yourself using the overlay button in Control UI. This require accessibility and the screen on during execution.
2. Using root and dumpsys, to parse the recent menu and kill the app based on the parsed data. This of course require root and again you should suit to your phone and need.

I maybe can create the script or similar, but it most likely won't work at your phone. So it still need your own part.
