How to reset custom aspect property to null

Hello all,

I would need to get an idea on how to set a property (e.g. "invoice date") of a custom aspect to null using the WebServices API. I tried the following (simplified) example


NamedValue[] contentProperties = new NamedValue[1];

String propertyName = "invoiceDate";
String propertyValue = "";

NamedValue namedValue = Utils.createNamedValue(Constants.createQNameString(WorkflowModel.NAMESPACE_MYCUSTOM_CONTENT_MODEL, propertyName), propertyValue);

contentProperties[0] = namedValue;

CMLUpdate cmlUpdate = new CMLUpdate(contentProps,predicate,"");
                  
// Construct CML block
CML cml = new CML();
cml.setUpdate(new CMLUpdate[] {cmlUpdate});
// Execute CML Block
UpdateResult[] results = WebServiceFactory.getRepositoryService().update(cml);   



As a result, I receive:
