  • Remove client with no backup history in predefined group
    Posted: 09-01-2017, 2:07 PM

    Hey everyone,

    I have created some workflows before this but need some guidance on this. I currently have a workflow that runs when a user inputs a client name for a box that is being decommissioned. It puts it in a Decomm group and puts some information on the description. We then have to manually check this group to find no outstanding backup history and delete the client.

    I would like to run something that polls the Decomm group and if a client has no history, it will delete the client from the Commcell.

    Any thoughts or guidance?

     

    Thanks,

    Shane

    Hi Shane,

    in the workflows section of the GUI there is a pre-created workflow that comes with the product called "Demo - Client Group Policy".

    Have a look at the activity in there called "Fetch Clients". It basically loops through a given group and processes each client in said group. You would just need to add the commands in the for loop to check history and then delete.
