Can't delete rules in PowerAPPS

Dear MS Team,

I tried to delete a rule and then Save or Save As. But when I reopen the file, It still there. All I can do is rename the rule and change rule law. In general, the rule delete button is useless. Could you guys support us on this?

Kind regards,

Khoa Ng.H.D.


I'm having the same problem. I cant delete rules that I do not need anymore. I save, publish and reopen but they are still there. I've also been having problems where the app will not open. This happens when I add a new rule. Is there a solution to this?

I was also struggling to delete my rules and I figured out that my problem was that my rules were incomplete and in an error state.


If your rule is in "error" you can't see the trash icon.  This rule of mine is incomplete and in an error status












I Cleard out all the conditions and actions, then the trash icon showed up on mouseover of the rule.  Also, if the rule is valid, the trash icon can be seen



Thank you clearing out the rule error brough the trash icon back for me!
