"used by" error when trying to delete a Marketo custom object

Discussion created by Ginger Wilson on Mar 17, 2016

I've been testing various scenarios using Marketo custom objects and would like to share a recent observation:  Receiving an "in use" error while trying to delete a custom object.

 

My custom object was in use by a strange smart list - one that I knew I had not created:

Call me crazy, but this is the icon representing a Smart List:

And when I went to find this mystery list, I received this alert:

 

Well, the custom object was actually being used...  I had forgotten I had created script tokens used during testing.  Upon deleting the tokens, I successfully deleted the custom object.

 

I've submitted a case requesting the icon be changed to help identify being used by tokens using the token icon.
