Cannot delete some of the secondary specs?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

When I try to delete secondary specs, an error is returned "These specs cannot be deleted. These are either in use or previously associated."
I checked whether any categories and items are using these specs, that is, whether they are associated with these specs) by browsing the related categories and items. I found the specs are not currently in use. Why cannot I delete these?

Answer

You cannot delete any previously associated secondary specs. This is a design functionality in the product, which is implemented to maintain history of previous associations. This history is needed in case of a rollback request to a previous version of these specs, or the specs with which these secondary specs are associated.

Previously associated specs or currently associated specs cannot be deleted because of this reason.
