Delete a CSM Item

Use the CSM Item Managers to delete CSM Items (example: Dashboards, Reports, etc.). For example, you might want to delete obsolete Searches or Dashboards that are no longer used.

Good to know:

  • Deleting items in the CSM Item Managers does not delete the items associated with them (example: Widgets associated with Dashboards). However, there may be dependencies between CSM Items that can be affected when deleting items.
  • Dependencies are important to note when editing or deleting items in CSM Item Managers. Click the Dependencies button to scan CSM for everything that uses the item.
  • Managers look and behave differently in the Browser Client. For more information, refer to the CSM Browser Client.

To delete a CSM Item:

  1. Open the CSM Item Manager.
  2. Select a scope and subfolder (if needed).
  3. Click the CSM Item to delete, and then select one of the following:
    • Click the Delete Delete Button button.
    • From the CSM Item Manager window, right-click>Delete.
    • From the CSM Item Manager menu bar, select File>Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
