Unable to delete Data Uploader

Long time ago I created a data uploader, as I wanted to test uploading my data to Influx DB. But I really never used it. This uploader seems to degrade the performance of my iotawatt, so I like to delete or disable it.

In “Setup Data Uploaders” I see an “edit” behind the Influx_DB_v1 in the dropdown. I select that, and clicke the DELETE button at the bottom. The dialog closes right away, but nothing happens, the uploader doesn’t seem to get deleted. Restart doesn’t help either, and the log also shows that the uploader is still running.

Below my log file from the most recent restart.

How can I delete this uploader to improve my overall system performance?

Thanks
Hermann

There have been several reports on this. It’s a bug in the configuration app. I’ve fixed it with this:

Documentation on how to upload is here.
