Find Unused App Project Items

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

While you develop your app, it might occur that specific functionality (for example, pages or microflows) is not applicable anymore in the final version of your application. To keep your app project clear and easy to maintain, it is advised to clean any unused items up.

2 Finding Unused Items

To find the unused items, do the following:

  1. In the top toolbar of Studio Pro, click Edit > Find Advanced (or press Ctrl+Shift+F).

  2. In the Find Advanced dialog box, select Unused items in the Search for option:

  3. Click Find. and

The results will show up in the Find Results pane:

Find Results

To filter the results clicking the Show all button on the top-right corner of the pane.

Note that deleting any unused items might result in more unused items. For example, if you delete an unused page, a microflow which is only used on that page will become an unused item itself. If you are cleaning up your application regularly refresh the unused items list.

3 Marking Unused Objects as Used

Some pages and microflows are only used from Java code and will be listed as an unused item because Studio Pro cannot look into Java source code. To prevent anyone from removing these objects you can mark the page or microflow as used. Do the following:

  1. Open the page or microflow which needs to be marked as used.
  2. Navigate to properties and change the Mark as used property from No to Yes.
