How to delete a custom Doctype


I was playing a little bit with the system at the beginning and now we’re going to work with real data. I created some custom doctypes just to play with customization options, and I would like to delete them but can’t find the way to do it.

Best regards,


You need to login via administrator to do this at the moment. Would request you to raise a issue on Github.

Just remove permissions for now.

I’m currently logged as administrator, but still cannot delete it.

@Txibu you must have “Delete” permissions on DocType, DocType

Hello Man

I have delete permission as administrator (checked in doctype->doctype). It shows me it get deleted from doctype list but still I can’t delete anything linked with any of that doctype’s entry. Also when I login via ssh it shows me the deleted doctype folder too. Please help
