Create an Archive/Purge rule for the Server Configuration

    BUSINESS NEED

    One customer recently requested instruction to remove all the unnecessary configuration created on this QA environment.

    He is running r14.1 in AA mode and had so many ones created that he was not being able to manage them correctly - even being Inactive - and make only the correct ones be available.

    Currently, the only way to have unnecessary server configuration removed is to manipulate the tables directly - which is not recommended.

     

    THE IDEA

    As CA SDM has the ability to archive/purge tickets and this includes the activity log as well, a similar approach could be created for the SDM Server Configuration used by pdm_configure.

    That way it would be possible to keep the integrity among all create processes which are currently in use and clean the unnecessary ones.
