How can I delete additional fields in hybris Marketing?

Hi,

A couple of weeks ago I added an additional field via Import Data on the facthseet.

Today I want to delete this additional field. When I navigate to Import Data it's no longer possible to delete this additional field due to the field is used and data is in it (It's only possible to change the label).

Please, is there anyone who can help me to solve this? How can I remove an additional field with data in it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Regards,

Anne

    Hi Anne,

    if you want to delete a so-called "Easy Extensibility"-Field, you first need to delete the data in this field. You can do this by using the SQL-Editor in transaction DBACOCKPIT and running the SQL command UPDATE CUAND_CE_IC_ROOT SET TEXT20_3 = '' WHERE TEXT20_3 <> ''. Afterwards the flag for existing data in the UI should be gone and you will see the delete button at the end of that line.

    Best regards,

    Eileen

    For anyone experiencing the issue described above; where a custom field has been emptied for data; but can still not be deleted:

    The reason was that this custom field was still used in an export profile

    Hello,

    I have the same issue.

    I executed the given SQL command; and also command UPDATE CUAND_CE_IC_FT_D SET TEXT20_3 = '' WHERE TEXT20_3 <> '',

    However the checkbox for "existing data" disappears but the garbage bin does not appear; on hovering over it it still says "a field with existing data cannot be deleted"... (version 1702 onpremise)

    Could you please open a ticket for this issue so that we can have a look into the system and find out why the delete function is not provided?

    Hi

    We are unable to see the additional fields box to edit?

    Kindly let us know how to enable?

    Our version is 1611

    • Hi Srikar,

      we had this in 1608 version and not in 1702 I am not sure of 1611.

      Can you confirm if you have the app Custom Fields and Logic app, If yes then that is the app to be used to create new fields and the above option is no longer valid.

      Thanks
