Posted By:Jean Paul       Posted Date: November 30, 2014    Points: 200    Category: SharePoint    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

In this article we can explore Cascade Delete option in SharePoint

In this article we can explore Cascade Delete option.

Scenario: We have two lists with connected column

Customer list is connected with Project list, where Customer Name is a column of lookup.


Please specify the lookup list & column name.


The Data Integrity can be maintained through:

  • On updating Customers, the change should reflect in Projects
  • On deleting Customers, if associated projects exists, delete should be PREVENTED
  • Or, on deleting customers, the associated projects should also be deleted (CASCADE)


Now try adding a new customer (Contact Template), please remember to set the Last Name as well.


Now try adding a new Project (Custom List Template) with lookup column & relationship checked.


Once you have a customer & project, try deleting the customer item.


You should receive the following error.


This OOTB feature ensures Data Integrity.


Advanced Scenario

This may not be the case always; some lists will lack OOBT relationship option.  We can use custom event handlers to block the deletion option, in such cases.
