Is there a BULK unsubscribe function?


Janette Wong (711311) | asked Feb 22 '12, 2:02 p.m.
Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a fast way to unsubscribe from multiple assets?

I was learning/playing with RAM and I used a specific userID to create a bunch of assets. Then, to clean up, I logged on as an administrator and did a bulk delete of all those assets (I did not grant the userID which I used to create assets the ability to delete assets. Specifically, I want only an administrator to have the right to delete assets). However, I noticed when I logged on as that userID again went to My Dashboard, even though all those assets have been deleted, I was still subscribed to them. I cant find a way to do a bulk unsubscribe.

I know I can click on "View All" under Subscriptions to see all my subscriptions at once, but to unsubscribe, I still have to unsubscribe from each asset individually.

So there is no bulk unsubscribe just like there is a bulk delete?

Thanks!

If they are deleted then the next time the subscription processor runs
for the subscriptions they will be deleted at that time and a
notification will be sent.

So basically you don't need to worry about it. They clean themselves up
correctly after the specified notification interval. For instance if the
notification interval for a subscription is once a day then by tomorrow
it will be deleted. If it is once a week then it will be deleted next week.

By the way, there is a preference setting on user edit that allows you
to turn off automatically subscribing to any asset you create. By
default this is turned on and you get added as a subscriber when you
create it.
