Remove an item from deployment areas

You can remove items from a stream or project and all associated deployment areas.

To remove an item from deployment areas:

  1. Raise a request.

  2. Prime a task from the request and delegate it to a user.

  3. As the delegated user, do the following:

    In a stream
    1. Update the local work area.

    2. Delete the item from the work area.

    3. Deliver back to Dimensions specifying the task.

    The task now has a deletion related to it.

    In a project
    1. Select the item.

    2. Click the More menu and select Delete.
    3. To relate the deletion to a request, in the Track Changes with Request field, click Select and select the task you created earlier.

    4. Click OK or Yes.

  4. Verify that the item has been deleted from the stream or project and the DEV deployment areas.

  5. Close the task.

  6. Promote and deploy the request and task up the GSL, verifying at each stage that it has been deleted from the associated deployment areas.

  7. Close the request.

Tip: To remove an item from a stream or project but keep it in the deployment areas, repeat steps 1 through 5 above and then close the request. Do not promote and deploy the request and task up the GSL. The item will be removed from the DEV deployment areas but will remain in all areas associated with the other stages in the GSL.
