Failed delete custom connector

I have deleted a Custom Connector previously, now I wanted to re-create a connector with the same name, I got a error:

You have already created a custom connector with display name 'xxx'. Please specify a different name. 


I'm sure this connector with the same name is not in my custom connector list.

Re: Failed delete custom connector

Hi @Andy1,


If you are flows or App under PowerApps that is using the previous Custom Connector, then please take a try to delete the corresponding flow or App.

After that, create the Connector with the same name should work.

Re: Failed delete custom connector

I don't have any flows using that deleted connector (it used to be called custom api), is there any other thing I can try?

Re: Failed delete custom connector

Was this ever resolved? I'm running into the same issue: deleted a custom connector about an hour ago, new connector with the same name won't let me save because it says the name is being used, absolutely nothing connected to the old custom connector.
