Hi all,

Is there any way by which we can remove the baslines from components in RTC source control. I have deleted stream but i cannot be able to delete the component. I know, we cannot delete the component. Now, the issue is that, in components i have baselines and in those baselines i have some source codes files which i want to remove. Is there any way by which i can remove those files from baselines.

Components and baselines cannot be deleted.
Support deleting components from the repository (163568)
Provide the ability to hide (archive) baselines that are no longer needed (170855)

Note: If you need to delete file content (ex: due to sensitive data or other security/legal reasons) you can do so by following these steps:
This way even though the baseline still remains, the source code that you absolutely need to remove from the database will no longer be available. Note: You need to be an admin to do this, and once done the content is no longer recoverable.

As far as I am aware baselines can not be deleted.
