Working with tenants : Deleting a tenant

Deleting a tenant

You can delete a tenant, which also deletes the tenant's domains, users, and data, including partition information. Once you delete a tenant, any space that was used for that tenant's data becomes available.
You can delete a tenant and its users, domains, and data in one transaction, or you can delete each user and domain individually. You cannot delete a tenant if it is in use by the current database connection; in other words, you cannot delete a tenant for which you are a user.
Note: The default tenant cannot be deleted.
To delete a tenant:
1. Click Database Administration > Go to Database Administration in the OpenEdge Management console menu.
The Database Administration page appears.
2. Filter or search for, and select the required database connection.
The database connection home page appears.
3. Click View tenants in the Storage Management section.
The Tenant List page appears.
4. Select the tenant for which you want to delete.
The tenant details page appears.
5. In the Manage Tenant section, click Delete tenant and then click Yes to confirm deletion.
Caution: When you delete a tenant from the database, all domains, users, sequence current values, and data for the tenant will also be deleted. Should you want to restore the tenant in the future, you can do so only from a backup. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you back up a tenant before you delete it.
6. Click Commit. You can view status of such a task in the Database Administration Tasks page by selecting Database Administration > View > Database Tasks.
