Static Web App custom domain does not delete

Gerard 1 Reputation point

The custom domain in my Static Web App has a "deleting" status for about a day now. I've also manually removed the records from Azure DNS without any luck.

Can someone assist?

    @Gerard We apologize for the delayed deletion of your Static Web App that you are encountering.

    Can you please see if you are able to use Azure Resource Explorer? This tool was created by Microsoft for many reasons but one if the benefits is we can make changes that remove the UI. If you are encountering a UI bug, this will help you around it.

    The URL of the tool is

    Or you can copy/edit/and paste the below URL into your browser with your Static Web App's details. There are 3 fields below that you need to populate (subscription ID, resource group name, and static web app name). here/providers/Microsoft.Web/staticSites/insertStaticWebAppNamehere

    Once you are there:

    1. Ensure that you are in read/write mode as highlighted below
    2. Navigate to the "actions" tab
    3. You should see a "delete" button. Select this button.
      Note: This will delete your Static Web App.

    Please let us know if this resolved your issue. If not, please let us know so we can assist you further.

    Hi @brtrach-MSFT , thanks for the descriptive answer!

    I'm seeking to keep the App as it is, and only delete the custom domain.
    I've followed your steps to navigate to the custom domain instead, see below, and deleted the custom domain.
    It took some minutes, but now indeed it is deleted.
