Hi,

The delete command requires special privileges, which aren't granted to anyone by default, not even admin. Check the documentation for the delete command. The reason is that the delete command is destructive and irrevokable.

You can grant a user the can_delete role to enable deleting. It is highly recommended that you do this only temporarily for a specific user and remove the role immediately when you're finished deleting.
