Hi @Dikshit,


It is not currently possible to delete profiles via API at this moment which means this work will need to be handled manually in the account. Linking two articles from our help center in case others see this post and are not sure how to delete profiles.

Hi there,

To add onto Paul’s answer, one way that you can streamline this process if you need to delete a large number of profiles programmatically is to create a list of profiles that you want to delete and add users to that list via API. You can then delete the users in that list via the UI, rather than deleting all of them individually.
