Deleting feed data led to problems

by clonkerr on Mon Jun 22, 2020 11:03 am

I deleted (not disabled) my feed data thinking it would clear out old values so I could start afresh. However I was then unable to send feed data with the original names - OK I wasn't sure if that was what the warning meant, but I couldn't then send any data with new feed names. I also noticed the Key was showing as Loading...... I generated a new key and used that but still couldn't send data. Tried many things of increasing impact and eventually resorted to "Delete all data, including IO account information" and started afresh and am OK now.
Is it possible to clear out data so only that going forward is shown ? I know I can click on the x beside a value but I had too many rogue values to do that.
Thanks

clonkerr,

There is a 'Remove Selected Data' area on the actions drop down menu. You can kind of see it in the background of this image.

I cannot find that option anywhere. In Feeds, if I click the Feed box and look at actions there is Delete selected feeds, but not Remove selected data.

OK I see that the screenshot is from the Downloads option. I will try that - I have to wait as it says I can only do it once every 10 minutes, though I haven't tried at all yet.
I get this window which doesn't show any option to remove data. If I click to download it just says I have to wait 10 minutes before trying again.

Thanks, I did that. Apparently feed data can only be deleted one row at a time.
