Goal

How to delete a user UDF from OIM ?
  
Scenario:
First create a field :
  
  - created a sanbox
  - opened User Form
  - added a custom field named "MyCustomField". The type field is Text.
  
Now, due to a mistake during UDF creation, one may have to delete it.
Here's how to do it :
  - export the sandbox
  - remove UDF occurences in xml files
  - import the sandbox
  
After following these instructions, at the end the UDF field does not exist in the User form, but the associated database field still exits.
  
Is there a way to delete the database field without creating database inconsistency ?
