You can delete product attributes from below steps: Go to Admin, click on menu
Stores -> Product
You have display list of product attributes.
Now click on attributes you want to delete,
new attribute page will display,
delete attribute button to delete.
If you do not see the delete attribute button then that means the table column 'is_user_defined' in the eav_attribute table is set to 0. By changing this to 1 it will show the delete button.
If you do not know where to go to find the attribute then you can follow the answers. In the admin Stores->Attributes->Products
If it's Product attributes Navigation in admin for delete
Stores->Attributes click on
Products here you can see all attributes just click on your select attribute and click on
delete attribute button.
eav_attribute table set from
1 worked perfectly. I had migrated from Magento 1 and had all these left over attributes that needed to be removed but I could not because when they were migrated they treated those attributes like system attributes and therefore could not delete.
That last comment changing the
eav_attribute did the trick. Thanks.
