Delete an entity: There are dependencies on this entity that are preventing it from being deleted.

I try to delete an entity that I have made. (CDS) I always get this message : There are dependencies on this entity that are preventing it from being deleted.


I allready deleted the relationships, the entity is not used in any form or so.

Can somebody show me the magic solution?

Hi @SiegfriedVH 


Have you checked out the Show Dependencies feature for the Entity that you are trying to delete?  This will tell you what else is stopping the deletion.
