Due to a recent question of a customer, if it is possible to delete objects not manually but automatized within Automation Engine, we were able to provide an answer:

It is possible to use script command REMOVE_OBJECT to delete Objects, the deletion process is like it is done manually, means, the Object remains within the recycle bin until this one is deleted e.g. by reorganization process.

Important Notice:

Please keep in mind that the deletion process might take effect on running objects and it might be possible that the deleted objects might have relations to other tasks and objects, deleting objects automatically might be a risk then. Handle with care.
