Allow deletion of offers in Cloud Partner Portal that were never published
Currently, there is no way to delete an offer in Cloud Partner Portal that was never published. We have invalid offers that we wanted removed.
Thanks for the feedback, we are working on enabling this.

I have been requesting this for over 3 years. It is really problematic to NOT have the ability to delete offers that were never published (Gone Live). The transition over to this new partner portal is not impressive. Was hoping they would have at least addressed this.
Jaime Olivares commented
Same here. How difficult may be to implement this?
Is there some stubborn member in the Marketplace team? Because there is not any real restriction for deleting something that has been never used.
At least you can soft-delete it and hide from the partner's dashboard.

Still deletion functionality is not available
+1 for this from me too!
Its been 18 months since this feedback was submitted, is there an update that can be shared with regards to when this capability will perhaps be available?
Alex Gregory commented
Another +1 for this.
Brett Westover commented
Just wanted to add +1 to this request. The D in CRUD might just be the most important function. ;-)
In addition to being able to remove offers that were never published, offers where publishing was started, but then canceled before final Go Live should be safe to delete as well.
Finally, even fully published offers are not necessarily useful forever. Perhaps an "Archive" function that can remove these from the current active list of offers would work here.

We are also interested in seeing this feature become available in the Cloud Partner Portal. It will help us to stay more organized. Even if there was a "cancelled publish" section away from the "All Offers" section would be better than it is today for organization purposes. We would really like to be able to just delete them though.
When can we expect this capability to fundamentally manage our partner portal? can you give us a rough estimate? Q2? Q3? 2018? 2019?
when should we expect deletion of unpublished offer on cloud partner?
Being able to keep the Cloud Portal clean is crucial for effective offer maintenance. Also many times we create test offerings to work specific changes without involving the offers that have been published.
Not having this ability is definitely a customer friction point.

Thanks folks for the feedback, this is currently being worked upon.
It's such a basic CRUD feature. We need to be able to keep things tidy.
Kev P commented
Should be great. We have currently some failed offer that I'm not able to delete, Do I have to keep, all my failed offers?
