Beware: deleting your folder means deleting all data within it.

If you want to delete a folder, you must have the folder.delete permission. By signing in to your default admin user, you will automatically have this permission.

Continue by following these instructions:

  1. Click on the Render -> Folders tab
  1. Find the folder you wish to delete
  2. Click the three dots ‘…’ and select ‘Remove’ from the dropdown menu

You have now successfully deleted your folder.

Considerations before deleting a folder

As with editing folders, you do not want to delete a folder without planning. For example, your folder could still be in use by one of your internal systems. If you delete the folder without identifying which systems use it, then you may cause technical failure. Therefore, ensure you have no active processes operating on the folder you wish to delete.

Ideally, you have a technical overview of your systems and what they do. If you do not have one, please see the following topic:
