Delete community bookmark

It would be helpful to have a possibility to delete community bookmarks. Some bookmarks might become not relevant and when a person leaves the job bookmarks will keep hanging forever.

Is there any update to this?

I would also like to know this. Currently an app that is used daily by multiple people is full of bookmarks which no one wants, created by someone that left the company. It seems impossible to delete them without replacing the app and losing everyone's personal bookmarks?

I got a solution from Qlik: 

It can be done via Qlik CLI. If you have already installed and configure CLI then please follow the below steps.

EngineObjectId is Bookmark ID and you can get it from URL/Link as mention in below picture:

 ----CLI Script begins --------------

$EngineObjectId = "7d5b4e70-f7a5-CCCC-AAAA-XXXXXXXXXXXX"

gci cert:\CurrentUser\My | where { $_.FriendlyName -eq "QlikClient" } | Connect-Qlik -TrustAllCerts -username INTERNAL\sa_api -ErrorAction Stop

 

Get-QlikObject -filter "objectType eq 'bookmark' and published eq true and approved eq false and engineObjectId eq '$EngineObjectId'" | Unpublish-QlikObject

 

Get-QlikObject -filter "objectType eq 'bookmark' and published eq true and approved eq false and engineObjectId eq '$EngineObjectId'" | Remove-QlikObject

 ----CLI Script ends--------------

* If script doesn't work then try replacing the $EngineObjectId variable directly with bookmark id in script.

Having said that, this is not a user friendly solution can cannot be done easily. If more graphical and easily accessible way can be develop then it will help all the community.

More generally, the ability to modify bookmarks in the same way we delete other objects (sheets, stories, etc) would be helpful. This includes both deleting unused/unneeded bookmarks, but also changing ownership of a bookmark, renaming it, etc.
