How do I delete an entity in CDS

  I recently created an entity and  imported some data into it, but when  I tried to delete this entity, it keeps saying there's some relationship prevent it from being deleted. I haven't add any relationship yet and  I found out the moment I create an new entity it will add some relationships itself and there's no way to delete these relationships. As a result, it seems when you create an entity you can't delete it. It would be wonderful if there's a way to delete an entity I don't need anymore. Guys, any thought?

You can find the detailed dependencies on the entity by going back one level in the solution, select the entity, then Show Dependencies. This will list dependencies for the auto-created relationships, which will get removed automatically, but will also show any other components that are dependent on the entity, which you'd need to delete first

Hi @KatherineMo ,


Is it s standard entity or a custom entity? You can delete custom entities, but you can't delete standard entities.

Refer to below documentation about how to delete a custom entity:
