Removing App ID from Developer Connection

How do I remove an App ID from the developer program portal area? I mistakenly added a couple of app id's under the wrong login and would like to remove them, but I am not seeing a way to do so.

Any help would be appreciated!

  1. You can not remove an App ID.

    I had the same problem some weeks ago, and the folks at Apple replied that they will leave all of the App ID you create associated to your login, to keep track of a sort of history related to your login.

  2. App IDs cannot be removed because once allocated they need to stay alive so that another App ID doesn't accidentally collide with a previously existing App ID.

    Apple should however support hiding unwanted App IDs (instead of completely deleting them) to reduce clutter.

  3. As everyone else has already said you cannot remove an App Id.

    However, Simon Whitaker has created a Safari & Chrome extension that "adds" this functionality.

    It gives you an "Active" checkbox next to all your App IDs and allows you to relabel them to alter how they appear in the App ID drop-down when creating new provisioning profiles.

  4. App ids cannot be removed. My suggestion to handle this BUG is to append a number to the descriptive name of each app id you create, so you will be able to identify them in the always growing list of old app ids.
