2739555 - Candidate Relationship Management - Receiving an error when trying to delete the status set - Recruiting Management


In manage data, we are encountering an error showing up when deleting a candidate relationship management status map entity
"You cannot delete the Candidate Relationship Management Status Map entity because its data is being used by the Candidate Relationship Management Member Status entity."

Reproducing the Issue

1. From admin center, go to manage data
2. Search for candidate relationship management status map
3. Then, select a value on the right selection box. 
4. Once you have selected a value, it will show you the description of it.
5. On the right side, select take action then select permanently delete entry. Below error message will show up



Checked whether the status map is already associated to a talent pool group and if so, please checked whether there's a candidate application in it. If there's, then even if we archived the talent pool group, the same error message will persist which is an expected behavior.


Currently, this is an expected behavior and by system design. We cannot delete a status map entity, if it's associated to a talent group with candidate application to it.
