Hi,

Anyone know how to do this?
There is no delete on a right click or a menu option...

Regards,

Chris

Re: Deleting Retention Category?

Hi,

I've not seen an option to delete a category, are you 200% sure none of your users have used it through?

Best bet is to select the option to hide the retention category.

Re: Deleting Retention Category?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, no one is using it 200%!

Still have not found a way to delete it. Bizzare.

Cheers.

Re: Deleting Retention Category?

Don't do it. Hide it.

You can rip it out of SQL if you must.

Re: Deleting Retention Category?

Don't rip it out of SQL either unless you are absolutely sure that it has never been used. You can check this by running the following SQL query on all your VaultStore Databases using SQL query analyzer:


select count(*) from saveset, enterprisevaultdirectory..retentioncategoryentry evdbrc
where evdbrc.retentioncategoryname = 'business'
and saveset.retentioncategoryidentity = evdbrc.retentioncategoryidentity

Replace the 'business' value with the correct name of the retention category you are querying for.

Cheers
