We have about 10 custom packages in production. As best as I can guess these were used to deploy fields etc to sandboxes c. 2008 and have not been used since.
I would like to remove them, as they occasionally cause rather annoying issues and are not being used for anything. Currently I'm trying to uninstall a managed package we no longer need and I'm running into a dependency issue.
This extension depends on the package you are trying to uninstall. Venture II
Once I go into the unmanaged package, I do see the delete button. Before I press delete, I would like some guidance to be sure that deleting the package wont actually delete any fields or other metadata that are in the package.
I tried to test this in a sandbox, but I get the 'package was created in a production org so it cant be edited or deleted in a sandbox' error.
And I know uninstalling a package will remove fields, etc. I'm pretty sure this is a different scenario, but would hate to be wrong. Also if there are any considerations around the order in which I delete packages or anything else that could be helpful to know / learn / read, that would be most appreciated.
