How to Delete Old Data Set?



I am trying to delete an outdated data set in one of my workspaces. There are no assoicated reports, dashboards, or apps. However, when I attempt to delete, I'm getting the following message: "The dataset can't be deleted because it's included in the published app. Try again after unpublishing the app or updating the app after removing all related content."


Again, I don't have any apps!


Anyone know how to fix this?

Re: How to Delete Old Data Set?

Hi @jl20,


If a dataset is part of one or more organization content packs, the only way to delete it is to remove it from the content packs where it's being used, wait for it to be processed, and then try deleting it again. Do you have some content packs related to this dataset? Click the gear on the top right and view content pack.


Is this dataset stored in your own workspace or App WorkSpace (group)? If it is in app workspace, will it be a group member publish app based on this dataset?

This isnt resolved. He said he has no applications and I have the same issue. No applications, no content packs, but I cant delete the dataset and I get the same message.

I'm experiencing the same issue. By clicking on "Manage Permissions," I can see where the dataset is in use, and for the datasets I'm attempting to delete, there is no related content.

Was having the same issue but figured it out.  


  1. Goto the workspace (also referred to the app)
  2. On top right click on eclipses (...)
  3. Select "Unpublish App"
  4. Now go to your dataset and delete and confirm
  5. Click on the workspace eclipses again
  6. Select Edit Workspace
  7. Publish app again
