Delete Entity
Use the Delete Entity action to remove objects from the database.
Complete the following steps to use the Delete Entity action in your workflow:
1. Drag the Delete Entity action under Windchill to the canvas, place the pointer on the action, and then click or double-click the action. The Delete Entity window opens.
2. Edit the Label, if needed. By default, the label name is the same as the action name.
3. To add a Windchill connector type, refer to Supported Windchill Connector Types.
If you previously added a connector type, select the appropriate Connector Type, and under Connector Name, select the connector.
4. Click TEST to validate the connector.
5. Click MAP CONNECTOR to execute the action using a connector that is different from the one that you are using to populate the input fields. In the Runtime Connector field, provide a valid Windchill connector name. For more information about MAP CONNECTOR, see Using Map Connector.
6. Select the Entity Type from the list.
7. In the Entity Id field, provide a Windchill entity identifier in the Windchill object identifier (OID) format, OR:Type:ID, where Type is the internal name of the Windchill entity type. An example of a part identifier is OR:wt.part.WTPart:646192.
This action supports a single identifier only. The identifier should not be URL encoded.
8. Click Done.
