Cannot delete User Profile Property in SharePoint 2013

If you run into the problem that you can’t delete properties within the User Profile Service Application, an Exception like this will be shown:

The delete operation failed, please try again later. If the problem persists, please contact your administrator.

To resolve the problem, grant “Full Control” permissions to the administrative Applicationpools group (WSS_WPG).


Now you should be able to delete properties again.
