Try like this

LET varname=null(); in the script and then delete it from the front also this will delete the variable  permanently

Re: how to delete all variables

ok but what about if i have many variables to delete ?

I don't want to delete one variable at a time...it would take a long long time...

Re: how to delete all variables

I have so many variables in my qlik sense app because i'm using QDF GitHub - QlikDeploymentFramework/Qlik-Deployment-Framework: QDF version 1.7.1.

I'm going to import the app created on my local PC to Sense Server, so I need a quick way to delete all variables and let QDF create them again.

I've got the same issue. If you have somehow landed up with loads of unwanted variables in your app (that are no longer in the load script), you've got to delete them one by one in the Variables viewer. Some way of initialising them all in an app would be a win for me.
