Delete Directory




The Delete Directory job step is used to delete a folder from the file system.


This job step type extends basic job step functionality.  For details common to all job step types click here.


In addition to the common attributes shared by all job steps this job step type has the following attributes:


Delete Options tab:

Directory Name: The name of the directory (also known as a folder) to delete from the file system.  All contents of the folder will be removed. 

Enforce Delete: If checked the job step will automatically report failure if the directory being deleted does not exist.  This is not a setting that will need to be frequently used.

Delete Recursively: This option is required if the folder to be removed contains files and/or subfolders.

The job will fail if the Processor Agent account does not have permission to delete the directory or if the directory contains open files.

After making changes be sure to press the Update button to save your changes.
