There is an option available to delete attribute types, but that is rarely used since an attribute type cannot be deleted if it is in use.
- Assignment of the SW Architect role in the server
- An installation of the SystemWeaver Architect client (swArchitect)
- An Attribute type can only be deleted if the following conditions are fulfilled:
There are no attribute values assigned for type, for any item, part or node
The attribute type is not used as a default attribute for any item or part type
To delete an existing attribute type, select it in the list of attribute types, right-click and select Delete.
| If you try to delete an attribute that is still in use, you will receive a message that it cannot be deleted. The attribute type to be deleted must meet the prerequisites noted at the top of this article.|
If an attribute will not longer be used, consider deprecating and/or restricting it from view. These options are explained in Creating Attributes.
