Allow the ability to delete a retention label definition in S&C Center if 'Record' classification
If you've created a retention label in the Security & Compliance Center and have checked the 'Use label to classify content as a "Record"' checkbox, I would like the ability to delete the label under certain circumstances. If I've never used it, it's not published in any policy, I should be able to delete it. I've set up several "test" labels with this checkbox checked and there is no way (either thru the UI or thru PowerShell) to delete the label definition. Example: if you create a retention label and select the 'record' checkbox, save it and then immediately try to delete it, you will NOT be able to.
Same for me. I've created some test label with 'Use label to classify content as a "Record"' checked, but never used it. I'm not able to delete these labels anymore. From UX perspective, it's quite frustrating that you can create items, but not edit or remove them anymore, even if you're an admin. Please fix this Microsoft.

Note: this also happens if a retention label is defined "based on an event". As soon as you save the label, you can no longer delete it.
