Reproducing the Issue

Unable to mass delete positions or any mdf objects via import.


  • Currently this is a system limitation and is not supported via imports.
  • Only deletion via manage data and permanently delete is possible.


  • Our development team is working to provide this feature of deleting mdf object instances via import and is planned to be made availble in b1705 release.
  • You would be able to perform mass deletion of mdf objects via import post b1705 release.

b1705 update:

  1. Please find the link on steps provided by engineering on how to delete records for MDF objects through import here.
  2. This is a new functionality introduced in b1705 and is only available in preview environments. this would be available in prod environments from June 2nd weekend.
  3. Engineering would not be deleting the MDF objects by scripts and hence this functionality has been introduced as a self service feature.
