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.

At this point there is no functionality it Target to delete them and you do have to wait for them to expire.

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': '' }

});

Is there even a way to reset them? This makes everything so difficult to test.
