Is there away to DELETE all items that are DISAPPROVED?

So some items I have are disapproved due to watermark images and I understand why. But sometimes the watermark image is a logo on the item and bot think it's a logo that is promoting some word or company etc.

 

Either way, is there way to delete all items that are just disapproved as I rather get them gone instead of going one by one and deleting them.


I did see the LIST section and saw that it i can filter by "status and disapproved" but when i delete one it says failed to delete.

 

Am I able to call GOOGLE and ask them to just delete all disapproved items so i can get a the Grass is green look?

currently, there is no such feature.

the proper way to delete items is to remove the items

from the submitted data (feed) and resubmit the feed --
or issue a delete request, only if the api is being used.

about the only likely methods to approximate the automation of the task,
is to either download the reported issues list from the diagnostics-tab
and possibly write a script or function to update the feed, or use the
google content-api-for-shopping to both create an item-list and then
remove items from the feed, or the equivalent api methods; both these
methods are nontrivial and may not be able to address all disapprovals.

as an aside, never reuse any id value of any deleted item --
unless the exact physical inventory item is added back later.
