When an admin user attempts to delete a Document Type or subtype, an Error occurs: [This field is referenced by ** documents].
This may be caused by sharing fields under the target Document Type or subtype.
Ask a Vault admin to stop sharing the fields under the target Document Type or subtype and try deleting the document type again.
To stop using shared Field, do the following:
- Navigate to: Admin --> Configuration --> Document Fields.
- Locate the target Document Type.
- Click Stop Using Shared Field in the upper right corner of UI.
