Goal

How to purge active instances ("Running" / "Recovery Needed" state) by using the purge scripts?

WARNING

Purge scripts are designed to not purge any active instances (which include running or recovery-required instances).
We expect users to take care of the active instances (either retry or cancel) which transits the instances to a non-active state and allow the purge script to delete them.

Backup your database before using this solution.

 

Note
This solution applies to the purge scripts from SOA 11.1.1.3.0+.
The purge scripts for 11.1.1.6 includes the deletion of instances based on composite name, where as 11.1.1.3 to 11.1.1.5 purge script do not have this feature.
