Hi,

 

We are running a testing A360 CR server + IQ Bot server and we are trying to delete(using AAE_Admin user) certain “old” version packages from the “Packages” section from Control Room, but we are unable to do so, e.g. , notice how the “Delete” option is not there, even though this package version is disabled… (this package is NOT being used by any bot….)

Hi @Andoni 

Checkout below documentation on deleting a package from CR, user should have Manage package permission to complete this activity

https://docs.automationanywhere.com/bundle/enterprise-v2019/page/enterprise-cloud/topics/aae-client/bot-creator/using-the-workbench/cloud-package-management.html

Hi @ChanduMohammad , I have read that prior to posting my question here. Notice that in my post I remark that I’m using AAE_Admin user, which inherently has Manage package permissions

@Andoni  remove required package from here 

Drive:\ProgramData\Server Files\public\package

@rbkadiyam, is it safe to do so?? Also, some packages are “duplicated”, i.e.:

C:\ProgramData\AutomationAnywhere\Server Files\public\package\bot-command-iqbot-extraction360-1.0.9-20221223-075522.jar

C:\ProgramData\AutomationAnywhere\Server Files\public\package\full-packages\bot-command-iqbot-extraction360-1.0.9-20221223-075522.jar

It isn’t safe. The packages will preserve references in the database.

@Andoni 

The documentation shows an option to delete packages but i’ve checked in a twice of control rooms (on prem and cloud) and isn’t available.

 

https://docs.automationanywhere.com/bundle/enterprise-v2019/page/enterprise-cloud/topics/control-room/packages/cloud-manage-control-room-packages.html

 

 

Probably is necessary to  create a support ticket to clarify.

@Andoni check the dbo.package if there is no dependency you can delete from the folder, This is how I am maintaining my environments clean rather than huge packages list and different developers using different packages.

@rbkadiyam I’m looking at the dbo.package table and by looking into it can’t determine whether there is any dependency or not (which column do you look at to determine this????)

 

@Raul Jaimes thanks for the valuable information! I agree 100%. It is stupid (and unacceptable) not to be able to delete packages that occupy several GB in the disk….I am raising a ticket right now
