Delete profile attributes

It would be nice to be able to delete profile attributes without having to wait for the profile to expire or to load the attribute with false data so that it no longer qualifies for an audience.

Agreed. I tried setting the profile attribute to null, hoping that would delete it but it just cleared the value.

So is the only way to remove profile attributes by waiting until they expire?

@Eric,

Wish I could vote this up twice.

Note that while it's apparently still not possible to delete profile attributes, via an offer one could reset the profile to some other value or to an empty string. For example:

adobe.target.trackEvent({

'mbox': 'YOUR-MBOX',

        'params': { 'profile.YOUR-ATTRIBUTE': '' }

});

It would be really useful to force the removal of old attributes.

 

Use-cases:

- Old parameters that were added during development

- Parameters where the name was changed on behalf of our customers

+1 from me too. As mentioned by the other contributors, there are so many relevant use case where it would be relevant to be able to delete this.
