V7.1.9 upgrade - Delete RSV's from old V6.x
We are in process of upgrading our V6.x app with CPMHC to V7.1.9 and in that process we would like to know whether we can keep V6.x specific RSV's after skimming (major version) or not. If we don't delete old RSV's, what will be the impact after upgrade? If we want to delete, we have many locked old RSV's with unknown pwd and what is the approach to delete them using delete RS wizard or any straight DB scripts to delete? By the way, we have > 30000 old rules in the system and we may consider the DB space to keep in V7.1.9 too.
Can someone help me from the best practices stand point?
It is a best practice to skim the Rulesets and delete the old rulesets from the 'Delete ruleset' landing page "Designer Studio>System>Refactor>Ruleset" and there you have a 'Delete Ruleset' landing page
Thank you Basavaraj for the reply. As I mentioned, we don't remember the pwd for the locked RSV's. Without unlocking the RSV's, the wizard will not delete them. Tried but we were not succeeded in deleting the locked RSV's using the wizard. That is why I am checking the alternative ways to do it from the best practices and no impact on the current system.
Yes Phani. We are doing the same except last point. For now, we are good. Also, we checked one PDN article which has the list of tables to be cleaned up for deleting all the old Ruleset version specific rules. We kept this deletion part as low pirority for now.
