Deleting custom modules

You can delete custom modules from your Developer Portal if you want to remove them entirely from your site.

Before you begin

You must have administrator access to complete this task.

Note that any custom modules that you want to delete must be disabled first, including disabling any associated sub-modules. For more information, see Disabling modules. Any modules that are shipped with IBM® API Connect cannot be deleted.


  1. Log in to the Developer Portal as an administrator.
  2. If the administrator dashboard is not displayed, click Manage to display it.
  3. In the administrator dashboard, click Extend.
  4. Click the Delete tab.
    The list of disabled custom modules that can be deleted is displayed. Note that any disabled modules that have sub-modules that are still enabled, are prevented from being disabled.
  5. After you have found the module that you want to disable, select the check box next to the module, then click Delete.
  6. At the confirmation dialogue, select Delete to delete the module completely from your site, or select Cancel to cancel the operation.


You successfully deleted the module.
