Dropping a Configuration Management Project
si dropproject
When a configuration management project has outlived its usefulness or just does not belong on the Windchill RV&S server anymore, you can remove it.
To drop a configuration management project means that the project is no longer registered with the Windchill RV&S server.
Project paths are referenced using the repository location. This allows you to reference checkpoints in dropped configuration management projects. If a checkpoint is currently referenced and the corresponding project is later dropped, the checkpoint remains accessible as read-only. For example, you can continue to open the referenced checkpoint from an SI project field or create a build Sandbox from the checkpoint for auditing purposes.
Dropped projects can also be accessed as read-only from the Change Package and Locks views until the project is purged or reclaimed by your administrator.
To drop a configuration management project, select a project in the Projects view, and select Drop Project.
If a project is dropped and any Sandboxes or variants are associated with it, those Sandboxes or variants no longer function.
Dropping a configuration management project unregisters it from the Windchill RV&S server, but it does not delete the project. Dropped configuration management projects can be added back into Windchill RV&S.
