Deleting an Experiment Run

See original GitHub issue

The user indicates he wants to delete a particular experiment run.

  1. The user selects the experiment to delete. (by opening its detail view).
  2. The system shows a delete option in the detail view. (left-bottom under the menu).
  3. The tells the system to delete the experiment. (clicking on a delete button in the left-bottom)
  4. The system verifies the intention to delete the experiment. (a confirmation dialog)
  5. The user confirms his choice.
  6. The system deletes the run. (invoking DELETE on /api/run/<id>, which also deletes corresponding metrics, fs.files, and all other related entries).
  7. The system closes the detail view.
  8. The system removes the run from the table.


  1. The run is deleted.
  2. Related metrics are deleted.
  3. Related sources are deleted.
  4. Related artifacts are deleted.

Alternative scenarios

    • The user does not confirm the choice - the run won’t be deleted. (Postconditions do not apply)
    • The run couldn’t be deleted. The user is informed with an alert box.

It’s partially implemented - only the run itself and its metrics (if used) are deleted. Some garbage (like sources and artifacts) are not deleted, though. It’s in the development version: pip install

When I will have time to finish it is currently unclear 😦

My fault, I wanted to split it into several issues so that I can close each of them but now I realize I can keep this as a “parent” task. But I think I will put it into “icebox” then because I don’t currently plan to work on it.
