Deleting order objects

You can delete order objects from the database, after an order has been fulfilled or canceled.

Note: The delete statements for the stale_guest and stale_non_guest object types are designed to work with an ATP inventory system. If you are not using ATP inventory, the inventory subquery must be adapted. If you allocate inventory during the OrderProcess command, then the subquery can be removed. However, if you reserve inventory on P, I, W, or N orders, update the query so that the orders with allocated inventory are not deleted. To customize a default Database Cleanup utility configuration, add a configuration to the Database Cleanup utility instead of modifying the existing one. This process ensures that your changes are not lost during a fix pack installation.

    • Oracle
      • AIX ./dbclean.sh -object order -type typename -instancexml WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/xml/instance_name.xml -db dbname -days daysold -loglevel loglevel -dbtype oracle -dbuser user -dbpasswd password
      • Windows dbclean -object order -instancexml WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/xml/instance_name.xml -type typename -db dbname -days daysold -loglevel loglevel -dbtype oracle -dbuser user -dbpasswd password

      Use host:port:sid for the database name for example, myhost:1521:mydb.
