Usually a deletion process may have different stages in this order:
- User A request deletion of a row clicking in the button DELETE
- A popup window appears requesting user A to CONFIRM the deletion request
- Once the user A has confirmed in the popup window, a superuser B may receive
a notification of APPROVAL. Superuser B has to approve the requested deletion before
it's executed over the database.
- Once superuser B has approved clicking in the button APPROVE, the original deletion
request is executed and the row is efectively removed from the database.
Notice that the above description is only an approach. Yours doesn't have to match it exactly.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, confirm and approve are synonyms in this context:
confirm verb [ T ] (APPROVE)
to approve someone or something officially by formal agreement
As an IT professional, I suggest the word "CONFIRM" for your button. It's the most used in this case escenario.
