deleteMetadata does not delete package folders from MDS (Doc ID 1485050.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Application Integration Architecture Foundation Pack - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 1. From deployment plan:
 
 

<DeleteMetadata wlserver="fp"
  dir="AIAComponents/ApplicationConnectorServiceLibrary/RedPrairie/V1/**" />

 
 
  The above should delete all files and FOLDERs under V1, however the V1
  folder will still be there. This is working fine.
 
  2.  So in order to delete the V1 folder as well, we went one level up and
  tried to delete it seperately like below:
 
  For e.g.
 

<DeleteMetadata wlserver="fp"
  dir="AIAComponents/ApplicationConnectorServiceLibrary/RedPrairie/V1" />

  
 
  3. so the deployment plan was like the one below,
 
  Deployment plan:
  =================

  <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
           <DeploymentPlan component="Metadata" version="3.0">
                     <Configurations>
                             <!-- delete all files and folders under V1 -->
                            <DeleteMetadata wlserver="fp"
  dir="AIAComponents/ApplicationConnectorServiceLibrary/RedPrairie/V1/**" />
                              <!-- now delete the V1 folder itself -->
                            <DeleteMetadata wlserver="fp"
  dir="AIAComponents/ApplicationConnectorServiceLibrary/RedPrairie/V1" />
                     </Configurations>
           </DeploymentPlan>

 
 
However the files were deleted with the folder structure remained intact.
The folder structure was not deleted.
