    Hi Team,

    I have tried to do this in Welkin Suite by selecting 'Delete' for an Apex Class in a production project but an error is returned. 

    Is it possible to delete Apex classes in SF production via this IDE?

      Thank you for your question.

      There is no ability to delete an Apex class in your Production project via the IDE.

      This is the limitation of Salesforce.

        @Kate.Dulko and TWS team.

        Did the answer of inability to delete a class has changed since 2016?
        The other IDEs are doing this by updating %className%.cls-meta.xml file with <status>Deleted</status>

        As of July 2018 I can't find the option to deploy only meta xml part of the class to an Org.
