SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Territories view.
  3. Select the relevant territory ABC (ABC represents the territory name).
  4. Click the Delete button.
  5. The territory will not be deleted. You might receive an error message like 'Cannot delete territory; accounts remain assigned to it' or similar. 


Your territory ABC is assigned to data in the system. The error message above would mean that there are accounts assigned to the territory. You might get a similar error if other documents have the territory assigned (for example Sales Orders).


Delete the territory from the documents - both Master data as well as transactional data.
