To delete a portfolio

You can only delete local portfolios. You can remove imported (shared) portfolios, but you cannot delete imported portfolios.

To avoid errors, remove the constraints from the portfolio before you remove any products.

  2. Select the portfolio you want to delete.

  3. Choose Delete. You can only delete local portfolios. If you are attempting to delete an imported (shared) portfolio, the Actions menu is not available.
