Issue/Introduction

When I do the following via API on the <No Folder> folder: FolderList FoldersAppl = new FolderList (fold); I get an object return that is a folder type with the name FOLD.NEW.1. I see this folder neither in the database nor in the AE. how can I completely delete it from the database?

We can see the folder in the AWI but not delete. When we try to delete it in AWI we get the following exception

java.lang.NullPointerException

com.uc4.ecc.framework.commons.utils.componentfactories.ExtendedLabel.setValue(ExtendedLabel.java:67) com.uc4.ecc.ae.commons.controls.objectactions.dialogs.deleteobject.BaseDeleteDialog.showSingleMessage(BaseDeleteDialog.java:159) com.uc4.ecc.ae.commons.controls.objectactions.dialogs.deleteobject.FolderDeleteDialog$FolderDeleteCheck.lambda$getRenderer$203(FolderDeleteDialog.java:104) com.uc4.ecc.ae.commons.controls.objectactions.dialogs.deleteobject.DeleteDialogPresenter.lambda$dialogOpened$144(DeleteDialogPresenter.java:49) com.uc4.ecc.framework.commons.controls.asyncwidget.AsyncLoadingContainer$1.renderResult(AsyncLoadingContainer.java:360) com.uc4.ecc.framework.commons.controls.async.AsyncNoArgsContainerRenderer.renderResult(AsyncNoArgsContainerRenderer.java:28) com.uc4.ecc.framework.commons.controls.async.AsyncNoArgsContainerRenderer.renderResult(AsyncNoArgsContainerRenderer.java:9) 

 

Environment

Resolution

We were able to move the folder to a different location and then we can delete it. This resolved the issue.
