I created a new studio in my PlayFab Dashboard because our old studio had no publisher ID (at least visible), the newly created studio has a publisher ID which is great however now I'm left with an old studio instance on the Dashboard and I can't find any way to delete it. Also we have an old game title instance created for prototyping which is not used anymore. Is there any way to delete the unused title and studio?

Updating the accepted answer on this thread, to help clarify things:
There is no "delete title" functionality - the potential cost of a developer accidentally deleting their own live title is too great of a risk to allow this. When we add a "sandbox" environment to PlayFab, we will be updating to allow for deletion of titles (and studios) there.
To hide a title from your view, click on "rename" on the title's card on your main dashboard (get to that by clicking on the PlayFab icon in the upper left hand corner of the Game Manager). On the settings for the title, check the "Hide game" box and click Save Game.
Also, we can remove any studio from your account, if you want to remove a studio and all its titles. If that's what you'd like, feel free to add a request for that here, and specify the Studio ID (click on Settings for the studio on the main dashboard - the Studio ID is at the end of the URL for the studio settings page).

We can do that for you, but looking at your two studios, I think there's some confusion. The newer Studio with a Publisher ID has been named "[Needs to be removed]". Presumably, that's actually the one you want to keep?

Hey Brendan, thanks for the quick reply.
Well I did have a change in thought earlier to stick with the old titles since I don't need the publisher ID right now. But to future proof it's probably best to go with the new studio and title I created (the one with the ID). I renamed everything so now anything with "[Needs to be removed' should be removed now. Just waiting for PlayFab to update the names.
And no worries if the wrong thing is deleted, I have the json files backed up so creating everything from new is no problem.
Thanks for the help!

Okay, the next time you sign into the site, that Studio should be gone.

It is possible to hide titles from your view, by editing the title's (click Edit Game from the gear button on the title itself when you're on your dashboard - https://developer.playfab.com/en-us/studios, then choose the Hide Game option). We don't offer deletion of titles in our live environment, due to the risk of accidental deletion of a live title.
We can remove a title entirely from your dashboard, if you need us to - just let us know the Title ID, and we'll take care of it.

If you let us know the Studio ID, we can take care of that for you. You can find the Studio ID by clicking Edit Studio from the gear button for the Studio in question, in the Game Manager dashboard (https://developer.playfab.com/en-us/studios). It'll be the number in the URL for the edit page.
