Reproducing the Issue
In the LMS admin side, click:
- References > Learning > Assignment Types;
- Search for the desired assignment type and try to delete it;
- The validation error is thrown.
This type of ID, the assignment type, falls under some of the IDs that are used on the compliance report table.
These are used as primary key in the database and they cannot be deleted.
There would be two possible workarounds:
- Edit the assignment type name and put something as "Do not use".
- Reach out to the SAP Professional Services team to analyze and check the possibility to deleted it.
