Deletes an object. Use DeleteObject to delete a source, target, user-defined function, mapplet, mapping, session, worklet or workflow.
The DeleteObject command uses the following syntax:
DeleteObject -o <object_type> -f <folder_name> -n <object_name> [-s dbd_separator]
The following table describes
DeleteObject options and arguments:
Required Type of the object you are deleting: source, target, mapplet, mapping, session, “user defined function”, worklet, workflow.
Required Name of the folder that contains the object.
Required. Name of the object you are deleting. If you delete a source definition you must prepend the database name. For example, DBD.sourcename.
Optional. If an ODBC source has a period (.) in the name, define a different separator character when you define the source object. For example, instead of database_name.source_name, define the source object as database_name\source_name, and define the dbd_separator as backslash (\).
You can run the DeleteObject command against a non-versioned repository. If you run the DeleteObject command against a versioned repository,
returns the following error:
This command is not supported because the versioning is on for the repository <Repository name>. Failed to execute DeleteObject
