I created multiple datasets of the same data, How can I bulk delete?

I was installing the FB quickstart app and had to try multiple times to connect my data.  When I finally got it to work I realized that I had created a ton of duplicate datasets.  How can I easily bulk delete all the datasets and start over?


Thank You

    Hi all,


    Can anybody help @adam2739 with their question?

    @adam2739 today in Domo we do not have bulk actions in the Data Center. This is something that we are considering in the roadmap. 


    If you are looking to do bulk removal you could use the Domo Data APIs which have a deletion option:




    This can be scripted to delete the DataSets you need from a simple program.


    Going down the bulk action discussion, are there other actions that you would like to see have a bulk component?

  • Thank you for the response!


    As far as what else I would like to see in bulk.....I'm a pretty new user so I don't know what I don't know.  


    Thank you

    @adam2739 Then welcome to Domo!


    As you have ideas please add them here. Some of the things we are considering with Delete are:


    • Run Now
    • Scheduling
    • Pausing
    • Change Config
    • Copy (this would be one at a time but would help making multiple DataSets)


    Let me know if these posts are helpful, give the posts a like (it will help the moderators know that you have what you need)

  • So has this feature been added? I need to bulk delete about 90 dummy data sources and I don't fancy doing it one by one Smiley Very Happy

  • In the data center you can click on the check mark next to multiple datasets, click on the gear icon and choose delete.

  • Thank you!!! FYI for anyone else that can't find this, the option to select only appears when you hover over a data set, then when you select it you will see a select all option along the top
