Hi Anuj,

You can do so by the Process Builder.

Please find the below screenshots for the same:

1. Select the Object as Opportunity Line Item

2. Define the Entry Criteria i.e IsDeleted = TRUE

3. Update the Opportunity record

I have used Description field on Opportunity to update and Name field of the Opportunity Line Item. You can use any as per your needs.

Please follow the steps and let me know if it works.

Mark it as the solution if it solved your purpose.

Hi Anuj,

You will need to develop an after delete trigger on Opportunity line item to update the values on opportunity. The process builder does not fire on delete event.
