How to delete BPC unnecessary objects in production system?

Hi BPC Experts,

We have a requirement to delete unwanted objects in BPC production system.

Is there any specific method to delete unwanted objects in production?Do we need to delete objects from Development system then only move these deletion objects to production system through transport mechanism?Kindly let me know how to proceed this?

Thank you.

    "Do we need to delete objects from Development system then only move these deletion objects to production system through transport mechanism?" - something like this. But what is the issue? What objects you are talking about?

    • Agree with JP that in some cases the objects can be deleted directly. But it depends on specific case! In bpc it's easy to perform tests and modeling in the test copy of the environment.

    Hi,

    Deletion strategy will depend on the type of objects and.....If the objects dont have any inter dependency with other objects like reports, scripts, BADI's, security etc. then they can be deleted directly. But in case of any dependencies, then they would have to be first get rid of these dependencies in DEV and then delete the object and then transport it to Prod!

    But I always feel that deleting and then transport is a better way of keeping track of changes and all systems in sync!(but its complicated! data is not sync at all times).

    Regards,

    JP

    Thank you both.Yes.There is a lot of dependency with my deletion model and this model associated with BADI's,security,DM packages,Templates etc.

    Do I need to follow the transport mechanism or is there any other way to do this?

    If there is any document for same requirement kindly share with me.

    Thank you again.

    Hi Vadim,

    we have maintained security,Input templates,DM packages,Logic scripts with BADI's,reports for deletion of models.

    I tried to delete one sample model,but,I could not able to see that model in transport connection under BPC deletion mode.

    Could you please let me know what exact it is doing once we delete the BPC objects(model,dimensions..) from BPC admin side.Could we see those objects in transport deletion mode object type?

    for this do we need to have authorization?

    Kindly help.

    Thank you
