Deleting Configuration Items
Updated: November 1, 2013
Applies To: System Center 2012 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Service Manager
Deleting configuration items is a two-step process, and only members of the Advanced Operators, Authors, and Administrators user roles can initiate the Delete process in System Center 2012 – Service Manager. The first step does not delete configuration items directly. Instead, this process changes the property values of a configuration item so that the item will only be displayed in a Deleted Items view. The state of the configuration item is changed from Active to Pending Delete. A Service Manager administrator can later log on and permanently delete the configuration item from the Service Manager database.
