cleaning up a lifecycle project

john norris (20733643) | asked Jun 30 '13, 3:25 a.m.

Hi, I created a new lifecycle project which contained ccm and testing projects. I added several components to the stream via eclipse and then imported some eclipse projects. Unfortunately I was in the wrong work item, trying to recover meant that my eclipse projects were unloaded (fortunately I had backed up) and then I could not reload them due to overlapping workspaces problems.

So I wanted to delete everything and start from scratch. I was able to delete the lifecycle project but not the ccm and testing projects. In eclipse I was able to delete the stream but not the components.

Is there a way to do this. Oh for the days of a rmvob ...

John, you can archive projects. You could just also have created a new stream. You can't delete components, but you can reuse them at a stream. You can delete SCM content in newer versions of RTC: see

You can also simply share again on top of the data you shared.

PS: If the repo workspace got unloaded, then all checked in work was available on the server, you could probably have loaded the data. I am not sure what overlaps you have that prevents loading. This only happens if you keep one repository workspace loaded while trying to load another one with the same project(s) in a component.

Hi Ralph, thanks for this. So in summary, once a project is setup then you can not go back to the state before you started unless you restore a backup. That is a shame. By the way, your link above is showing a not found error.

The link tried to include the closing . so I fixed that. You can delete a lot of things individually, but some things you can't yet and there is no "Delete Project and data".
