I created a firewall rule for an application and put into /etc/ufw/applications.d, added that rule with command

sudo ufw allow MyApp

but now I cannot delete it. When I do

sudo ufw delete MyApp

it just prints the list of available commands like my command was invalid, which is what it probably was, but I don't know any other ways.

If you just want to delete the rule, the syntax is

sudo ufw delete allow MyApp
