The data exists for some private versions.


There is a functionality in SAC which allows you to delete all private versions of all users.

Please follow the steps below as the model owner:

  1. Open the model and click on the "Model Preferences" button (wrench icon).
  2. Go to "Planning & Time Range"
  3. Click on the "Delete private versions" button. This should give you a confirmation dialog telling how many private versions there are.
  4. After confirming, try to delete the dimension member again.
