    Hi

    I have created a custom product attribute via the admin but now no longer need it, if I press remove it is still shown. Is there a way to delete the attribute?

    thanks,
    Matt

    After deleting an attribute, you could see the red button at the top right “Update Schema”.
    If there is a button, press it and wait until process complete, if there is no button – everything is done.

    Product attributes are soft-deletable. This means when you deleting an attribute it’s still there, database schema and data will not be deleted, but it will not be used at the system anymore. Anytime you can restore it back.

    For now, there is no option to hard delete the attribute with all the schema and data.

    Best regards.

    Ah ok that explains things.

    A follow on question would be I have an attribute that is a Serialized field how do I change that to a Table column?

    this is the primary reason I want to delete my attribute but if I can update it or change that would be better.

    It’s required to create a new attribute to make it a table column.

    OK thank you. if in future the system could allow permeant deletion that would be good.
