Hi! Just a quick question to be sure: If I remove an existing attribute,
id
, that is currently in use by features, will those continue to work? We have replaced the attribute with another, and want users to start using the new one, but we don’t want to break existing features. From my quick test, I see that the attribute is still part of the configuration payload, so based on that, I assume things will continue to work as before, but it will not be possible to select the attribute on new features (which is what we want).

Yes, it will continue to work. If you go to edit a rule that is using the old attribute, it will put you into advanced mode since it won't be able to load the conditions into the form properly.
It might make sense for us to support archiving attributes instead of just deleting them. I think it might improve the UX a bit.

Thanks for your answer! Sounds like a good idea to have the possibility to archive attributes!
