Remove components from a Managed Package
|Knowledge Article Number||000004483|
In order to get a Managed Package to function, you'll need to add components. We'll fill you in on what needs to be done when you need to remove one of those components.
In order to remove components from a Managed Released Package, there are two options:
1. Partners can request to enable "managed component deletion" feature in the packaging org.
NOTE: Although a component is deleted, its Name remains within Salesforce. You can never create another component with the same name. The Deleted Package Components page lists which names can no longer be used.
If a component can't be deleted using this method, you'll need to follow option 2.
i. Package Version details - Name, version, etc.
NOTE: We can't change a Managed Package to an Unmanaged Package.
