Delete dataflows in the UI

The Sources workspace allows you to delete existing batch and streaming dataflows that contain errors or have become obsolete.

This tutorial provides steps for deleting dataflows using the Sources workspace.

Getting started

This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Adobe Experience Platform:

  • Sources: Experience Platform allows data to be ingested from various sources while providing you with the ability to structure, label, and enhance incoming data using Platform services.
  • Sandboxes: Experience Platform provides virtual sandboxes which partition a single Platform instance into separate virtual environments to help develop and evolve digital experience applications.

Delete dataflows

In the Experience Platform UI, select Sources from the left navigation to access the Sources workspace, and then select Dataflows from the top header.


The Dataflows page appears. On this page is a list of viewable dataflows, including information about their target dataset, source, account name, and date of creation.

Select the filter icon ( filter-icon ) on the top left to launch the sort panel.


The sort panel provides a list of all sources. You can select more than one source from the list to access a filtered selection of dataflows associated with the particular sources you selected.

Select the source you wish to work with to see a list of its existing dataflows. Once you have identified the dataflow you want to delete, select the ellipses (...) beside the dataflow name.


A dropdown menu appears, providing you with options to edit your dataflow’s schedule, disable the dataflow, or delete it entirely.

Select Delete to delete the dataflow.


A final confirmation dialog box appears. Select Delete to complete the process.


After a few moments, a confirmation box appears on the bottom of the screen to confirm a successful deletion.
