Be able to see any linked view to an object
We're trying to clean up some old objects and seemingly some objects have no use at all, as they have no relationships and no views attached. So those are candidate for cleanup.
However, when I delete such an object, it happens more than often that I get a message like 'This object has 0 relation(s) and is used in 4 view(s)' while on the View tab, there is none listed.
This might be due to permissions being the view still private. However, it would make sense to still list those views in that overview, so I see what those are and determine if they are relevant to cleanup as well and perhaps take ownership as admin to determine the contents (or rather have a better mechanism like request access or, as admin, be always able to open any view).
So I'd like to ask if ANY view can be listed on the objects View tab, to reflect the actual situation.
Good idea, just listing it would suffice. We wouldn't need names of the view or the creator(s). A request access is something that is even more useful, as it be beneficial for non-private views as well.0
We have encountered this as well a couple of times. Indeed these are private views and therefore impossible to find. I made a suggestion some years ago that the administrators would be able to find these views. It seems strange to me, that an administrator/super user is unable to. It is quite easy to create a kind of black holes due to this.0
Hi Sander, could you provide a link to that issue please?
For us, we would need this option for admins too, we have orphaned views that we are unable to locate within reasonable time (without acutally selecting all views or all users and finding the private view). Right now, we are unsure whether to delete / archive objects, as we are unable to tell whether the object is still really being used by someone.0
I will see if I still have it. As we were in a migration process at the time, it could be that we did in direct conversations.0
