Magento 2 Commerce comes with a feature called Content Staging. As far as I can see there is no clear way to delete an update.

I had a scheduled update with a catalog rule associated to it. After I deleted the rule the update was removed as well(or at least is not visible in the grid)

I now have a scheduled update with no objects(cart rules, catalog rules etc) assigned to it(I removed them) yet the update is still there.


  • How do I remove a scheduled update?
  • If there are any reasoning behind a scheduled update can not be removed?
  • Any findings on this? Oct 6, 2020 at 4:57
  • @AdarshKhatri as far as I remember the strategy we ended up using is removing all changes from a scheduled update, at some point the scheduled update was removed, via cron I think I have some work coming up on content staging in the near future and check on this. Oct 6, 2020 at 5:13

  • do you have any findings about this?

It is not possible to delete a scheduled update with a start time minor than current time.


private function canRemoveFromUpdate()
    $updateId = $this->updateIdProvider->getUpdateId();
    if (null !== $updateId) {
        $update = $this->updateRepository->get($updateId);
        $startTime = $this->dateTime->gmtTimestamp($update->getStartTime());
        $currentDateTime = $this->dateTime->gmtTimestamp();
        return $currentDateTime < $startTime;
    return false;
