Issue/Introduction



I'm looking for a way to do a bulk deletion of multiple instances of a custom object. Is there an approved method to delete custom object instances programmatically, instead of through the UI?

Environment

Release:
Component: ODSTU

Resolution

The only supported way to delete custom object instances is through the UI. 

One suggestion is to create a boolean field to use as active/inactive field. You can set up a default filter that would exclude those object instances you consider inactive. That way users that want to see the old inactive ones would have to change the filter.
