MDMGX extraction - delete reference data

scenario:  reference data values are deleted from ECC. MDMGX transaction runs and extract updated values, but deleted values will not be there in extract.

in this case how would i handle deletion of records in MDM. should i be deleting reference data records manually using Data Manager. is there any automation possible here?

SAP MDM does not provide any functionality to delete the records automatically neither using Import/Syndication and nor using MDM Workflow. It is a manual process.

Why It is Manual Process:  As Master data plays a main role in the any organization. So the decision of Master data deletion should be taken by business expert only. And they can decide it by reviewing the deletion records one by one, as, every master data record is unique.

Note: As per Master Data entices, Master data is not supposed to delete, it can be mark for delete or can be disabled.
