Volatile, stream and index layers can be deleted by anyone with manage permission to the catalog that contains the layer. Deleting a layer deletes the data within that layer and has no impact on the catalog and other layers. Versioned layer deletion is not supported.
Deleting a layer will permanently and irrevocably delete both the data and the metadata associated with the layer.
To delete a layer using the platform portal:
- Click Data.
- Browse to the catalog that contains the layer you want to delete.
- Click the layer you want to delete.
- Click More then click Delete layer.
