Solved: The image cannot be removed as it has been assigned to the other image role in Magento2




I have been using Magento2 for quite a few months now and it’s always good to learn new things and share my experience with other developers.

I recently tried to remove an image from a configurable product and I received an error telling me that ‘The image cannot be removed as it has been assigned to the other image role’, it was an odd message because I was sure that I unset that image and set a new image as base, small and thumbnail, however, something wasn’t still right so I did the following to fix this:




  • Make sure that you are not in the DEFAULT STORE view, if that is the case, please switch to your website store view.
  • Set another image as Base, thumbnail and small image.
  • Now you can easily remove the image.

Please share this post with others if the solution worked for you.
