Deinstalling a Business Package

We have made a Business Package test.epa and installed it using the Portal import utility . It has an iView and a System datasource .

If i want to remove this package and its contents , I have to do everything manually meaning :

1.I have to go to every user who has user mapping done to run the iView and clear the contents from the Alias (remove the user and passwd mapping )

2.I have to go to the System Configuration , delete the system Max_Test .

3.Then go to the Content Administration and delete the iView .

4.Then i can delete the Transport package and the folder structure.

<b>Is there any way to remove the Package in one go using some interface provided by SAP Or does it have to be done manually using the steps i have indicated ?</b>

    Hi Ravi,

    see How to remove a business package?

    The path Kyle gave must be System Administration - Support - Support Desk - Portal Runtime - Portal Anywhere Admin Tools - Administration Console. But this component you also reach if PDK is deployed (Java Devleopment - Development - Component Manager). All this holds at least for EP6 SP2.

    Additionally, you only have to remove "top" objects. So in your example, you don't have to perform step 1. Just start with step 2.

    Within Content Administration, just delete the top folder containing the transport package, the iView and whatever is in it. Again one step less.

    But additionally you have to remove any PARs which have come with the Business Package (if you have an iView, it is probable that this is built on some sources within a PAR included within the EPA). For this, use the link given above.

    Hope it helps
