Delete Folder in Sage X3

By | January 23, 2013

We have created a folder in Sage X3 but as this is folder was a PILOT folder, now I want to delete the folder. As I deleted the folder the traces of the folder still remained i.e. the Tables of the folder, Folder Directory in Sage X3 Installable Path remain as it is.

Thus We have found that the As of version 6, the process of deleting a folder is more than simply pressing the delete button within the folder function (GESADS). In order to delete a folder we must do the following:

  1. Depublish the folder in the admin console (part of the web server functionality)
  2. Go to Windows Explorer and find the folders\X3_pub directory and delete that file folder
  3. Delete the data folder within Windows that corresponds to step 2
  4. Launch SQL Server and perform the following
    1. Drop all logins associated with the folder. At a minimum that includes the folder name correlating to the login as well as the folder_report login as well.
    2. Drop all tables within SQL that correlate to this specific login
    3. Drop the user from the database
  5. Delete the folder within the folders function (GESADS)

Hope this helps.
