Deleting a value

Values can be deleted by clicking Values on the sidebar from the Home tab, and clicking the trash can icon next to the value you want to delete. Deleting a value deletes it not just for a particular flow, but for the entire tenant permanently.

  1. Click Values.

    This opens the Values screen that lists all the values in the current Boomi Flow tenant.
  2. Find the value you want to delete, and click thescreen-shot-2016-11-16-at-2-54-19-pm icon next to the value.
  3. In the Confirm Delete screen, click Delete.

If you create a value, and subsequently decide to remove it from a flow, the value is not deleted, but continues to exist in the tenant (it is just removed from that particular flow). The data contained in a value can be edited/deleted during runtime.

Note:  If you try to delete a value that is referenced in a flow, you will get the error message: Element cannot be deleted due to dependencies.Parameter name: Element.Dependencies. If you get a dependencies error, check your email for the Boomi Flow system-generated detailed error message. This message lists where your dependencies may be, including in any map elements, etc. that reference the value.
