Deleting activities

Use administrative commands to move one or more activities to the Trash view.

To run administrative commands, you must use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for details.

  1. Start the Activities Jython script interpreter.

    1. Use the following command to access the Activities configuration file:


      If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, you must pick the node where the file is stored.

  2. If you have not yet created a variable that contains the activities you want to delete, create one. You can get a list of activities in hash table format by using one of the fetchActivities commands. See Activities administrative commands for a full list. For example, if a person leaves the organization and you want to delete all of the activities that he owns, you can perform the following steps to narrow down the activities to delete:

    1. Get a hash table of information related to a specific user:

      variable=ActivitiesMemberService.fetchMemberByName(java.lang.String member)

      For example:

      joe=ActivitiesMemberService.fetchMemberByName("Joe Jacobs")
    2. Retrieve the activities that a specific person owns:

      variable=ActivityService.fetchActivitiesByOwner(java.util.Hashtable member)

      For example:

  3. Enter the following command to delete the activity or activities:

    ActivityService.deleteActivities(java.util.Vector activities)

    where you specify the activity or activities that you want to delete as the activities parameter. For example:
