COBOL - Endevor - Delete Element

Deleting Element Levels Using the Delete Elements Action

To delete all levels of an element from the product, any associated processors outputs from either stage, and if you use the CA Endevor SCM Automated Configuration Manager (ACM), the component list for the element, use the Delete Elements action (available in foreground, batch, and in packages).
If you use ACM, you can specifically delete only the component list for an element.

Note: This element action erases base and delta forms of an element and removes related information from the Master Control File (MCF) or component list.

This section contains information for performing this development task in the foreground only.

Note: For more information about how to perform this element action in batch, see the SCL Reference Guide.
For more information about how to perform this element action using packages, see the Packages Guide.
The Add, Move, Generate, and Signin actions can be performed from the Quick-Edit Option panel, if the CA Endevor SCM Quick Edit option is enabled at your site.
For more information about Quick-Edit, see the Quick Edit Option User Guide.

How Deleting Element Levels Works

When you delete element levels using the Delete Elements action, the product performs the following actions and causes these effects:

  • Verifies that the element currently exists in the stage you specify.
    If the element does not exist in the stage, you cannot delete the element.

  • Determines whether the element is signed out to you.
    If the element is signed out to someone else, you must set the OVERRIDE SIGNOUT option to Y to delete the element.

  • Deletes the element from its associated source output library, if one has been defined for the element type.

  • Determines the processor group last associated with the element, and then executes the delete processor in that group if one has been specified.

  • Deletes the element base level, and all change levels.

  • Updates the Master Control File (MCF) to reflect this processing.

    Note: When the Automated Configuration Manager (ACM) is installed, both the element and its component list are deleted.

Delete Element Levels

To delete all levels (base and delta members) of an element from the product, any associated processor outputs from either stage, and if you use the CA Endevor SCM Automated Configuration Manager (ACM), the component list for the element, use the Delete Elements action.

To delete the levels for an element

Follow the below steps to delete the levels for an element.

  1. Start the product using the instructions provided by your site administrator.

    The Primary Options panel appears.

  4. Specify the element you want to delete, enter the additional information for the action, enter # (pound sign) in the Option field, and press Enter.

    Note: If you enter a CCID, it is logged to IBM's System Management Facilities (SMF), if enabled, and is available to exits in the product.

  5. (Optional) If the System Selection List, Subsystem Selection List, and Element Selection List appears, enter S to the left of the system, subsystem, and element you want to delete.

    The element levels are deleted, and the Master Control File (MCF) is updated.
