I added the Civicrm tables to the settings.php according to the database integration guidlines at civicrm/admin/setting/uf?reset=1 I enabled watchdog logging for civicrm I installed civicrm entity. I installed views bulk operations I selected the Civicrm contact views bulk operations field in a view, and the Delete operation.

The delete operations appear to throw no errors..but the contacts are not deleted.

What could cause this?

  • any log errors?

It worked when I just tested it. You should know that Civi can be configured to hold the contacts in 'trash', so they might look like they are still there, but you will notice they are marked for permanent deletion and don't show up in any reports.

You should change your View to filter by "Contact is Deleted" set to 0.
