Edge Import - Delete Feeds

Prior to this enhancement, customers needed to submit a work order to delete a feed.

With this enhancement, a new Delete this Feed button is available on the Overview tab of the feed settings. Clicking this button deletes the feed.

When a feed is deleted, all scheduled runs for the feed are cancelled permanently. This button only appears on the Overview tab of the feed settings, and it is only available to administrators who have the Delete Feeds permission. In addition, only disabled feeds can be deleted.

A deleted data feed cannot be restored.

To access the Feed Settings page, go to Admin > Tools > Edge > Imports and Feeds. Then, select the Feed Settings button. Then, select the appropriate feed.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This enhancement provides self-service ability for customers to delete feeds without needing to engage customer support.
