In a data container, you can choose to delete a data record permanently or only remove it from the data record list. You can delete only one record at a time or delete multiple records together in one go.

Before you begin

You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. A data container exists and is populated with some data records.

About this task

To delete a record permanently, do the following:

Procedure

  1. Follow the steps outlined in Browsing a data container to search for the data records of interest.
  2. Right-click the record you want to delete permanently, and then click Physically delete the selected record.
  3. A dialog box pops up, asking you to confirm the deletion.

    If needed, select the Fire Delete Event check box so that a delete event will be generated and written into UpdateReport. Next, in the Source Name field, define a name for the source which generates the delete event. You can also select the Invoke before deleting process check box to enable the verification of the delete event by a Before Deleting process.

  4. Click OK to validate your changes and confirm the deletion.
    The data record will be removed from the list of data records and be deleted permanently.

What to do next

To remove a data record from the data record list, do the following:

  1. Right-click the record you want to remove from the data record list, and then click Logically delete the selected record.

  2. A dialog box pops up, asking you to confirm the deletion.

    In the Set Part-Path field, give a path within the recycle bin, where the removed data record will be stored temporarily.

    From the recycle bin, you can permanently delete data records or restore them to the data container they were deleted from.

    Note: Currently, "/" is the default and only option for the Set Part-Path filed.

    If needed, select the Fire Delete Event check box so that a delete event will be generated and written into UpdateReport. Next, in the Source Name field, define a name for the source which generates the delete event. You can also select the Invoke before deleting process check box to enable the verification of the delete event by a Before Deleting process.

  3. Click OK to validate your changes and confirm the deletion.

    The data record will be removed from the list of data records and can be restored from the recycle bin later.
