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.

is it possible it's referenced in a workflow or a view?
