(IDM)Unable to remove Link of old Favorite Tasks From Manage Tab in User Interface, Please Suggest

Recently we have moved from IDM 7.2 to IDM 8.0

We have removed old UI tasks from the new system after importing new tasks from development.

In UI we are still able to see links for old UI tasks

We want to remove those old links.

    I've added the MX_USER_PREFS attribute to my "change all data" task and with that I can clean up all users which have entries with old taskids. Works like a charm.

    Decoding the value inside the SQL server is possible, too, but I was too lazy for building up a batch job (ToDatabase) which then automatically would remove rows with old taskids of the MX_USER_PREFS. Thus, I just react when I see it by accident or someone says it to me.

    Should work in 8.0, too

    • So simple and yet: genius! Just added that attribute to my "clean up the mess" mask.

      Thanks for that tip, Dominik!

    Hello there,

    in 7.2 you would empty the attribute "MX_USER_PREFS" per user to achieve that. You can't get rid of old favorites otherwise, if the tasks are already deleted.

    I don't know, if this got easier in 8.0 though.

    Steffi.

    Same as IDM 8.0

    I need to create custom job to delete MX_USER_PREFS value.
