I deleted a content item but the feed still remains.

Reproducing the Issue

You want to delete a content item: 
  1. Go to the Content section and locate the content item you wish to delete: 

  2. Choose More > Delete selected items

  • When you delete a content item (e.g. wiki, blog etc.), the related feed still exists.

  • This is expected behavior. The feed item is not deleted as, although related to,  it is separate from the content item
    • there may be discussions/comments on the feed item; these should not be deleted.
    • a user may have shared the feed
    • a user may have bookmarked the feed


To delete the related feed:

  1. Click 'Feed Updates' and find the associated feed item

  2. Click inverted arrow icon, then 'Delete'

  3. A confirmation message appears, click Delete to remove the item from the group feed or profile wall


If your SAP Jam instance has a Home feed the feed will appear in it.

To remove the feed item from your Home feed, repeat steps 2 and 3 (above) in your Home feed.

Please note: The same applies if you delete a feed; the content that generated the feed will remain unless you go to the Content section and delete the content item:
