Deletion of Workspaces

While it is quite convenient to create new workspaces for each project, managing multiple workspaces can quickly become a hassle and a waste of precious resources. Especially when the project at hand is complete. Hence, it can be a good idea to delete workspaces when they are not needed.

Firstly, there are two types of Workspaces, the default workspace created for a user when they join the platform and the ones that are created thereafter. The permission requirements are different for the two, but the steps are the same.

To delete a default workspace, one needs to be a root user for the workspace. For the other workspaces, the user would need to be an admin user.

Now that we know which roles have the ability to delete a workspace, let's move forward. First, go to the Workspace management console again. Here you will be able to see a Delete Workspace button on the top right of the screen. Click on this button.

A popup will appear asking you to confirm whether you want to delete the workspace, click on Ok. If you have valid permissions, the workspace and all its entities will be deleted.

Once the current workspace is deleted you will be redirected to another workspace you're a part of. If you deleted your default workspace, then a new default workspace will be created and you'll be redirected to it.
