When a field is deleted from an app, either from modify template or API, the external ID seem to be unusable forever. If I create a new field with the same name it, adds -1, -2, -3 ect regardless of the external ID being available or not. I understand the need to add a number if the same external ID is used, but not when it has been deleted and cannot be used.
I can see that the field is deleted through the API but I cannot restore it. Is there any way to make this possible? It would be very useful and save us a lot of work as we have a lot of code using the external ID.
