Why are dependencies not showing when deleting?



Hello Why are dependencies not showing when deleting? For example, when deleting a group it is displayed "Benachrichtigungen verwenden dieses Objekt nicht" but there _is_ at least notifications using this group "Wenn der Sensor für mindestens 60 Sekunden im Zustand Fehler ist, führe E-Mail an alle Mitglieder der Gruppe Emailverteiler_BxxxDxxxKxxx schicken aus"

Thanks & Bye

I'm afraid in case of deleting a device (or a sensor, or a group of devices) the "connection" to the notifications are not checked because there is an "intermittent" level between the device/sensor/group and the notification, the Trigger. And the "Delete Object"-Page only checks direct connections. Also this pages is a rather general page, so not all entries are checked for each category of object. If you however delete a schedule that is used in a notification, this will then be mentioned there.

best regards.
