Deleting an entire Project Area


Harry Koehnemann (30115238) | asked Jul 17 '07, 6:38 p.m.
I am experimenting with Jazz and have created several Project Areas of useless content. I have also demoed Jazz for others with more usless data. Is there an easy way to clean them up? Some items can be delete, but not others - I'd like a 'nuke the entire Project Area' option. Did I miss it?

Also, does the Jazz server store *all* data in the 'db' and 'workitemindex' directories? If so, can I zip a snapshot of these two and then restore later? This appears to work but would like some confirmation.

If you right-click on a Project Area in the "Project Area Explorer"
view, you'll see an action to "archive..." the area. This currently just
sets a bit on the area (and all its team areas) which allows them to be
filtered from the UI.

We don't allow deleting project areas from the UI because of all the
broken references this would create.

They can only be *deleted* programatically (for example, in tests).
