    Delete custom fields with Field Configuration

    David Wilkes Apprentice

      Hi there,

       

      I recently created a a number of custom fields using field configuration. One of those fields is not longer required.  I don't seem to be able to delte the field from the fields tab but I was able to delte the field from the layout tab.  If anyone knows how to do this it would eb really helpful.

       

      Thanks,

          Hi David,

           

          Looks like you are using Ariba Administration UI to configure fields. If you are using a on premise solution of Ariba, you will have an option in customization manager to download the AML file and clean the field and upload the file back and restart the server for changes to take effect.

           

          In case you are using a On-Demand solution, you will have to submit a service request from connect.ariba.com and they will help you if there are no dependencies. Also, you should refrain from creating fields that you are not sure you need as all these fields that you create can only be soft deleted.

           

          Regards
