Error Handling
Removing Reference Set Members

Inactivation

Inactivating a Reference Set member will keep it in the database with the status: inactive. This is the action to take at released Reference Set members that become deprecated but cannot be deleted, or at non-released members where the status will be likely to be set back to active in the future.
If the referenced component is inactivated, that will result in the Reference Set member being automatically inactivated as well.
Remove a published member:
  • ​
    Remove/Retire member button: Select members in the table and clicking the Remove button in the editor toolbar.
  • Context menu: Right-clicking on a member and selecting Remove/Retire Reference Set member from the editor context menu.
  • In-cell edit: To change a member's status click on the cell where it's displayed for the member and pick inactive from the drop-down menu
Inactivate an unpublished member:
In case of non-released members, using the Remove/Retire Reference Set member action would permanently remove the member from the database. If the intention is to make the membership inactive, use the status drop-down menu instead (see screenshot above).

Deletion

Deletion permanently removes the member from the database and cannot be undone. When you want to delete a deprecated Reference Set member you need to keep in mind that the referenced components will not be deleted. However, if one of the unreleased referenced components are deleted, the associated Reference Set member will be automatically deleted too.
You can delete an unpublished member by
  • ​
    Remove/Retire member button: Select members in the table and clicking the Remove button in the editor toolbar.
  • Context Menu: Right-clicking on a member and selecting Remove/Retire Reference Set member from the editor Context Menu.
