How to delete datasources from a gateway?

How do I remove a datasource from a gateway(I'm in the web interface).

 

I have some redundant datasources which I want to remove, there seems no option to delete them.

If you hover over the data source connection you will see the "..."  Click on that and select "Remove"RemoveGateway.jpg

I just found this post as I am wondering the same, but when I hover over the data source in the list I do not get the menu shown in your screenshot.  Does anyone know if this ability to delete data sources has changed since this was first posted in January?

I just checked and it is the same for me now as in the screen shots.  Are you sure your account has enough rights to delete data sources?

 

@jdbuchanan71 Hey thanks for the reply...it turns out I was just hovering in the wrong place.  The "..." did not appear for me until I moved my cursor all the way to the right.  All sorted now.

This right here got it for me, hover all the way to the right and the ellipsis shows up.  Thanks @rfontaine !

This is one of the most subtle little bits of UI.  Really impossible to discover without extra documentation, IMO.  Thanks so much.
