Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the tenant in Cloud Application Studio.
  2. Right click on the solution under My Solutions.
  3. Click on Delete Solution.
  4. Error message appears.


Deletion of orginal solution is not allowed if a patch exists for the solution.


You need to delete the corresponding patch solution first(YPQR_). Once the patch solution is completely deleted, you can proceed with the deletion of orginal solution(YXYZ_).
