The causes of errors associated with data tables in thingsHub are documented below:
This error is received if the Data Table that the user is trying to delete is being used in a flow in the thingsflow editor.
Resolving this error
To resolve DATA_TABLE_BOUND_TO_NODE errors to allow for data table deletion the user must take the following steps:
Go to the thingsflow editor
Identify the flow (the tab) in the thingsflow editor where the data table out is being used. This information may be obtained from the error message while the user tries to delete the data table.
Identify the node where the data table is being used. This is clearly visible in the UI - The node where the data table is being used will be tagged with the data table name.
Unbind the data table from the node by either:
Deleting the node
Selecting another data table by choosing the select data table option, and selecting another data table if available
Creating data table by choosing the create data table option, and assigning a new name for the newly created data table.
Redeploying the flow by clicking the
Deploybutton to save the changes.
The user will now be able to delete the data table.
