Can''t edit or delete custom pick list

I created a new Picklist, I added a new item in the picklist without modifying the item that is created when the Picklist is created (NewItem...).

I added a second item (third if we count the one that was automatically created) and clicked the save button.

After I realized I didn't modify the automatically created NewItem, I deleted it.  Now, I cannot edit or delete this picklist.  If I click on it in the list of Picklists, I get the "loading" animation, and it comes back to the same screen.  That Picklist can't be open anymore, therefore cannot be deleted nor edited...

Hi @Olivier,

 

What is your current situation?

Based on my understanding, you just deleted the picklists after noticing the item is not modified as expected, and then the picklists screen can't be loaded, right?

Have you tried to sign-out and sign-in again?

I just tested to delete the picklists, which comes with no errors.

Hi  ,

No, I did not delete a Picklist, I made modifications in a Picklist, and now I cannot edit or delete it.  Essentially. clicking on that Picklist doesn't open the "Picklist editing screen", it stays on the "List of Picklists screen".   I noticed that there are some other Picklists that I created that I cannot edit or delete. 

My situation is that I would like to delete those Picklists that I cannot edit so I can replace them with Picklists I can edit.  There is a bug in Picklists that you might be able to find if you can find out why my Picklists are locked.

Thanks,

 

Olivier

Hi @v-micsh-msft ,
Is there a way that I may delete the pick list?
Thanks

Hi @Olivier,

 

Please take a try to add another user into your Environment Admin role under PowerApps Admin portal, then use that account to delete the Picklists.

For another test, please add a new picklists, then check to see if it could be deleted.

Regards

I have this problem as well. I have some data in my Entity its not much but i didnt want to clean the data and try to update my picklist. Is there any other solution for this issue. Because there will be many updates in the application and we may need to change the items of Picklist frequently...
