How to delete a failed model in form recognizer

Emily Harper 111 Reputation points

Hi there!

I attempted to train a model in form recognizer studio and it let me, then coming after the fact to tell me that it could not train due to there only being 3 documents (surely it would be better to say this up front rather than letting the training attempt anyway before erroing...)

However, I now have a failed model stuck in my models list in form reconigzer studio. The delete button is greyed out so I cannot remove it.

When I do list models, it is not there due to it being in failed. When I run the API to delete model, it says the model does not exist. I re-trained the model with 5 documents and I then had the correct model in the list, with the same name. But the old one remains there. I tried again to delete it, but it just removes the working one. I have no way to get the stuck model out of the list.

Thanks in advance if you can advise how I can get this to go away.

    I never did get it resolved. I had to remove my fields.json and start over re-mapping. Adding fields, testing, adding more etc. and keep doing. Something is not quite right and not sure what it is.
