2531902 - Skill Deletion is Not Possible


You try to delete a skill in the system but it is not possible.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Skills work center.
  2. Go to the Skills view.
  3. Select the Skill XYZ (XYZ represents Skill ID).
  4. Click the delete icon.
  5. Observe the results.

Clicking delete only gives you the option to erase the description.


This is the expected system behaviour.

It is not possible to delete a skill once it has been created in order to prevent data inconsistencies.


Alternatively the status of the Skill/Group can be set to Blocked. This means that this Skill is no longer shown as an option when adding to objects (e.g. Employee).
