    Removing a language from a Cloud project

    I have a Cloud project with currently two languages defined in Settings->Languages.

    I want to delete one of them, but if I do, and clone the project to my live environment, it's still there.

    If i delete it on my local environment aswell, and try to restore/transfer, I get this error: Languages in source and destination site do not match.

    So it seems like the languages are stored in a file somewhere, that is not being picked up by the source control. Anyone tried this before?

    Hi OleP

    Do you remember how did you solve this issue? I saw the same problem recently.

    Hi Alex, I actually didn't solve this yet. But I think I know how to solve it. In the "data > revision" folder you can find .uda files for all languages too. So delete the language in Umbraco, and delete the corresponding .uda file too.

    Deletions are not (yet?) handled by Cloud.

    So when deleting languages, templates or other, you need to do it on all environments.

    For languages specifically, you have to make sure the language is not set on a node (under Culture and Hostnames), and if you use Dictionary elements, those need to be re-saved after deleting a language.

    Also makes sure any other developers that might be working on the project, delete their local project, and clone it down again.

    Edit: You are right Michael. Deletions have to be done manually on all environments. However, the issue here is that deletion of a language is not removing the UDA file for that language. Not sure what happens if you delete it manually.

    Was anyone able to find a solution for this?

    I have v7.12.4 project that is throwing this error and all attempts to force the extraction and get rid of the failure marker on Development have failed. In this case, however, I do not see .uda's for the deleted languages on either Local or Development. I've tried:

    • Rebooting Development
    • echo > deploy from Kudu CMD prompt
    • Making a negligible change on Local, then committing and pushing to Development

    My next step will be to attempt restoring the content on my Local from Development, then repeating the negligible change + push approach.

    FWIW, the output from the pushes did not indicate any failures. It was only after inspecting the environment and it's corresponding project page did I realize there was an issue.
