    I don't see what the problem is allowing a deleting for those people who really don't care about losing everything because these were all just test projects and now full of nonsense and invalid data your stuck with it.

    2015....and here there still is no option for a user to control their own data. How far is too far protecting people from their own ineptitude?

    Why not add a recycle bin akin to archive that will delete after 60 days..maybe too long but still that would at least allow the garbage to be taken out.

    I actually found out that every little simple test project i made since i started playing with the editor (around two months ago, really a beginner) is still there and to my surprise there's no way to delete it... This has to be sorted out or, AT LEAST, make it clear that when the editor starts by default you are actually saving everything in the Cloud without being able to remove anything...

    Can't quote this enough .

    I've been absent for a while and deleting projects we added to the cloud build is still not possible, as is deleting the organisations we created...

    It was reported on Nov 02, 2015, that deleting projects is disabled TEMPORARILY until Unity implements a better approach. It is now Feb 24, 2018, over three years later. Unity, your idea of "temporary" is bogus. I am really OCD about having projects that I want completely erased still lurking around somewhere. I don't want these projects "archived" or "disabled". I want them completely erased! Why can't you understand that?

    So Aram-Azhari provided some information in post#23 on how to delete these projects.
    curl -X DELETE -H "Authorization: Basic yourAPIkey" https://build-api.cloud.unity3d.com/api/v1/orgs/your-organization-name/projects/yourprojectIDnumber

    But I have no idea what I am supposed to do with this line of code. I don't know what a Unity terminal is. There is this link https://build-api.cloud.unity3d.com/docs/1.0.0/index.html where you can enter your API key at the top left of the page and then navigate to 'Archive Projects' and type in your-organization-name and yourprojectIDnumber. But anytime that I do that, I get this as a result:

    Response
    No Content, Status: 204

    Also, according to Aram-Azhari in post#23, there is supposed to be a "Disable Project" section, not a "Archive Project" section, on this https://build-api.cloud.unity3d.com/docs/1.0.0/index.html page. Regardless, I don't know how to get this curl -X command to work, and I don't want to disable or archive anything. I just want to completely erase things that I no longer need or want.

    Unity, you used to provide a "delete" option. And you told us 3.25 years ago that you only TEMPORARILY disabled the "delete" option. It is about time you put an end to this TEMPORARY business and give us a way to delete projects again. Just add additional warnings like "Do you understand that blah blah" and prompt the manager to click OK, I Understand - DO IT! confirmation buttons.

    Please?

    Wow this is horse dung. Its my content, I want it deleted permanently. The fact that its still archived means I do not actually control my content. Do I really need to get a lawyer involved?

    Yes, I just noticed this yesterday too. We are still unable to fully remove our projects from the cloud. Neither can we remove the name we put in "Organisation". I put my name in it then. At least, if I delete this account will my archived projects be deleted? @David-Berger

    I tried the curl command from a unix terminal and though I got no error response, it didn't do anything. Unity won't allow users to delete their own content. Given it's now 4 years that nothing was done, I guess it's a (bad) policy?

    Want to bump this again because by the given timeframe, this is getting ridiculous. I now have 25 archived projects from past tests and no opportunity to delete them permanently in any way. I get that it can be a problem for people accidentaly deleting their project by removing it from one of the services. If the underlying system works that way, that's unfortunate. But please give us back the "delete everything" feature. Apparently it worked before so I dno't get it why it hasn't returned for so long by now.

    Please fix!

    Another vote for this functionality. I created a second project with the same name as an archived one and I'm concerned this could lead to an issue in the future if I can't delete the archived version.

    Hmm... Doesn't GDPR require they comply with requests to delete your data? Is Unity Tech based in a country that needs to comply with GDPR?

    Is it possible to archive a project via API across all Unity services in any way? Thanks

    And two years later, I still cannot remove the projects I have archived...

    I have submitted a request about that; I hope it will be accepted and the projects I have created will be permanently removed.
