Deleting draft wiki pages

Delete unsaved changes to a user's wiki pages.

To run administrative commands, you must use the wsadmin client. For more information, see Starting the wsadmin client.

To delete a user's draft pages, you need the user's ID in your LDAP directory.

If a user edits a wiki page without saving the changes, a draft version of the page is stored in the database. Each time the user, or a wiki owner or editor, visits the page, a reminder about the draft is displayed. If the user is no longer available to save or delete the draft version, you can delete it by using the deleteDraftsByOwnerId command. This command is useful when a user leaves your organization.

  1. Start the wsadmin client.
