Source connectors in Adobe Experience Platform provide the ability to ingest externally sourced data on a scheduled basis. This tutorial provides steps for deleting accounts from the Sources workspace.
This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Adobe Experience Platform:
Before deleting the source account, you must first delete any existing dataflows associated with the source account. To delete existing dataflows, refer to the tutorial on deleting sources dataflows in the UI.
Log in to Adobe Experience Platform and then select Sources from the left navigation bar to access the Sources workspace. The Catalog screen displays a variety of sources for which you can create accounts and dataflows with. Each source shows the number of existing accounts and dataflows associated to them.
Select Accounts to access the Accounts page.
A list of existing accounts appears. On this page is a list of sortable information for existing accounts such as source, username, associated dataflows, and created date. Select the funnel icon on the top left to sort.
The sorting panel appears on the left side of the screen, containing a list of available sources. You can select more than one source using the sorting function.
Select the source you wish to access and locate the account you intend to delete from the list of accounts in the main interface. In the example, the source selected is Azure Blob Storage and the account name is blobTestConnector. When selecting multiple sources from the sorting panel, your most recently created accounts appear first because the list is sorted by created date.
Select the account you intend to delete.
The Properties panel appears on the right side of the screen, containing information regarding the selected account.
Select the ellipses (
...) beside the name of the account you intend to delete. A pop-up panel appears, providing options to Add data, Edit details, and Delete. Select Delete to delete the account.
A final confirmation dialog box appears, select Delete to complete the process.
By following this tutorial, you have successfully used the Sources workspace to delete existing accounts.
