Hello @Mira_Torres ,

Only an app that created an order (aka a sales channel app) can add or delete an order risk. Because of this, if your order was created by the Online Store sales channel, only the Online Store sales channel could process the call necessary to delete the order risk object. A private app would not be able to delete an order risk on its own.
