If an error message appears when you try to delete an app group

If an error message appears when you try to delete an app group, refer to the following and take necessary actions.

Error message Cause and solution
The app, which was deleted and can be restored, belongs to the app group that you are going to delete. In order to restore permissions correctly when the deleted app is restored, Kintone does not allow users to delete the app group to which the deleted app belonged.
To delete the app group, restore the deleted app first and change the app group settings. Alternatively, you will be able to delete the app group after 14 days from the deletion of the app since the app will become unrecoverable at the time.
Note that only Kintone Users & System Administrators (users who can register users and departments and configure security settings) can restore apps.
