Delete variable group

After upgrading to 4.1 all variables in our library are now grouped and by mistake we clicked on 'Duplicate variable' instead of 'Duplicate value' (not the greatest naming IMHO). Problem is that this variable group had about 150 variables, so now we have 150 variable values we need to delete. How do we delete the copied group? Can we only do this be deleting all 150 variables one by one?

    Hello Kjetil,

    Thanks for raising this here too. We've had a chat and we agree with that a delete group action will be a useful piece of functionality.

    I've added it onto this piece of work that's underway: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/3956.

    That task is to make some clearer visual improvements and other enhancements around groups, so it's obvious what's happening. Hopefully this will help avoid getting into the situation where you have an unintended large number of new variables.

    Regards,
    Nick
