Delete a database dictionary record

Applies to User Roles:

System Administrator

This procedure assumes the Service Manager system has table create-alter-drop-rights to the RDBMS system. If Service Manager does not have table create-alter-drop-rights, your database dictionary record changes remain inactive and mapped to null tables until you activate them. If your system does not have table create-alter-drop-rights to the RDBMS, we recommend you enable the option to create DDL to provide to your RDBMS administrator. You can then activate the database dictionary record changes after your RDBMS administrator has created the tables and columns specified in the DDL.

To delete a database dictionary record:

  1. Log in to the Service Manager system with a system administrator account.
  2. From the System Navigator, click System Definition > Tables.
  3. Double-click the table name you want to delete.

    Note: Each table name is actually a database dictionary record.

    Note: You can type the first letter of a table name to jump to that alphabetic section. For example, type o to jump to the oncall table.

    An overview of the table opens.

  4. In the Table management section of the Table tab, click Delete.
  5. Click OK to confirm the deletion.
  6. Click OK to close the confirmation message.
