The  deleteJFSResources repotoos command option has the following details. What does it delete exactly please?


The deleteJFSResources command enables the permanent deletion of the archived Jazz Foundation Services resources in context area, storage area, and consumer key. Permanently deleting archived resources can open up database space and improve performance.

Hi Mark,

It will actually delete resources.  For example if you archive a project, but the resources are still there and can be restored.  If you use the deleteJFSResources it will remove the resources, history and revisions will be gone.  Here's a link that describes this. wiki:  Permanently deleting resources

Hope this helps.

Hi, Thank you for this, my real question would be what are considered to be resources?
Does this work on CCM, QM and RRC or just RRC?
If so,
What is the correct syntact to delete all from all archived?

Many thanks

My understanding is that this command has no effect on CCM and QM (and there is no corresponding command for CCM and QM).   But we'd need one of the CCM/QM developers to confirm the accuracy of that understanding (:-).

Yes, it is only for RRC.  This is documented in the info center.

Info Center:  Repository tools command for permanently deleting resources

The info center has information also has details on the syntax.  Here is an additional technote on how to use the command.
