    data stored via scaffolding can not be deleted via REST and this is extremly disturbing. is there ANY chance to delete anything in the scafflolding data (not only setting to empty!) would need this very much.

    In my opinion the PUT method for replacing scaffolding data should manage that. In REST terms PUT is a "replace" resource method. so it should replace the resource (see https://rapidapi.com/blog/put-vs-patch/) currently it behaves as "patch" with a little "put"

    This capability is needed to be able to clear out table rows that were either entered in error, or the table data row information is no longer needed.  We are trying to evolve to an API only interface and this functionality would need to be represented.
