si dropproject
drops (unregisters) a project from a Windchill RV&S Server
si dropproject [--hostname=server] [--port=number] [--password=password] [--user=name] [(-?|--usage)] [(-F file|--selectionFile=file)] [(-N|--no)] [(-Y|--yes)] [--[no]batch] [--cwd=directory] [--forceConfirm=[yes|no]] [(-g|--gui)] [--quiet] [--settingsUI=[gui|default]] [--status=[none|gui|default]] project...
si dropproject unregisters a project from the Windchill RV&S Server. 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. For example,
si dropproject --forceConfirm=yes c:/Aurora_Program/project.pj
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 si viewcps and si viewlocks commands until the project is purged or reclaimed by your administrator.
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
This works only on "top level" projects; to drop a subproject from its master project, use si drop
