Unable to delete identity namespace

Description

Issue: I am in the process of setting up the PROD sandbox for *Blank Company* . I had noticed there was a few custom identity namespaces created. I know there are apis to create and update a namespace, but it appears the delete request is not allowed.

curl --location --request DELETE ‘https://platform.adobe.io/data/core/idnamespace/identities/10855296’
–header 'Authorization: Bearer ’
–header ‘x-api-key: ccb768e25dd346ab915014845876f828’
–header ‘x-gw-ims-org-id:*********’

response

“timestamp”: “2022-03-03T13:47:45.800”,
“status”: 401,
“error”: “CLIENT_ID_NOT_AUTHORIZED”,
“description”: “Client Id not authorized/whitelisted to call Delete API”,

}
}

how can the whitelist be enabled to delete the namespace which is not used for profile.

Resolution

We cannot delete identity namespace. It is an Enhancement request which does not release date yet.

The best thing to do right now is to rename them as “do_not_use” or anything which distinguishes it from the others for the architects to identify or to reset the Sandbox.
