Does portal.firecloud have this option?

    what if I'd like to remove an entire row from the data? How do I do that?

    @yfarjoun do you have a set entity? If you have a pair set for example, would re-creating the set (but perhaps giving it a new name) but leaving out the item you don't want work to achieve the desired outcome?

    leaving it out doesn't seem to remove it

    Unfortunately this feature is not currently available. As Eddie mentioned, we only support removing attributes, but not entities themselves. We plan to have this feature in in the near future.

    Can we remove entities by now?

    You can, with the API. I wrote up a detailed how to in response to someone's question recently. Not sure if we've posted it as a proper doc yet. Will dig that up for you if it's not coming up in search.

    Does this bulk delete still work? I tried to import a file with __DELETE__ to wipe out the my data model tables but I get the following error.

    Error: Invalid first column header, entity type should end in _id
