Removing Project Areas in RTC v.2


Maria-Jose Arbulu Barturen (63104) | asked Dec 03 '09, 4:16 a.m.
Is there a way to remove archived Project Areas using RTC?

In case it is not possible, has any body do it via a script that accedes to DB2? Does it works fine or could it cause future issues in the repository?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

it is, as far as I know, not yet supported to delete archived projects. You can suppress archived items in views.
I think it is not advisable to delete content in the database this could cause all kind of trouble. Reasons are cross project links as well as potential usage of archived data in histories etc.

I have seen many requests like this and assume there is a work item to provide this.

As Ralph says - please do not go in and edit the DB directly, you will cause problems that will probably be unrecoverable.

There is work going on at the moment looking at things like moving projects between repositories, etc that would help here. Try

and look at this and the related items.

Thanks a lot for your answers. I know it is very risky to edit the database from out side RTC. My customer wanted to know the experts opinion.
