This is working as designed.


CA decided to keep the element in CAPC for historical reporting reasons.


When CAPC syncs with the Spectrum, it creates a Spectrum device element and if configured will discover device and elements polled by CAPM. When the device is deleted from Spectrum, the Spectrum device is deleted but not the CAPM device. Note that the CAPC system de-dups the devices so even if a device has multiple data sources you only see one device in CAPC.


Further details:

- Add device to Spec; device syncs to CAPC. If it is never discovered by the DA, when its deleted in Spec it should be gone from the CAPC inventory.

- Add device to Spec; device syncs to CAPC; device discovered via DA. When device is deleted in Spec, it will still show in CAPC inventory due to the other DS (the DA) being aware of it. Will remain there until deleted from the DA views also.
