DeleteField - Amazon Connect


Deletes a field from a cases template. You can delete up to 100 fields per domain.

After a field is deleted:

  • You can still retrieve the field by calling BatchGetField.

  • You cannot update a deleted field by calling UpdateField; it throws a ValidationException.

  • Deleted fields are not included in the ListFields response.

  • Calling CreateCase with a deleted field throws a ValidationException denoting which field IDs in the request have been deleted.

  • Calling GetCase with a deleted field ID returns the deleted field's value if one exists.

  • Calling UpdateCase with a deleted field ID throws a ValidationException if the case does not already contain a value for the deleted field. Otherwise it succeeds, allowing you to update or remove (using emptyValue: {}) the field's value from the case.

  • GetTemplate does not return field IDs for deleted fields.

  • GetLayout does not return field IDs for deleted fields.

  • Calling SearchCases with the deleted field ID as a filter returns any cases that have a value for the deleted field that matches the filter criteria.

  • Calling SearchCases with a searchTerm value that matches a deleted field's value on a case returns the case in the response.

  • Calling BatchPutFieldOptions with a deleted field ID throw a ValidationException.

  • Calling GetCaseEventConfiguration does not return field IDs for deleted fields.
