Automation Hub - Cannot Delete Automation Areas

How to delete Automation Area/Category as deletion attempt results in "This category is being used and cannot be deleted" error ?

This issue happens if the category/area :

  • has any child dependencies (Category and Sub-Category)
  • is being used in an automation idea or Components
  • is linked to applications in "Application Inventory" (Admin --> Platform Setup --> App Inventory)
Resolution: Removing all the dependencies from above locations allows the area/ category to be deleted.
