Removes files. Even though this command is intended to remove standard list files you are suggested to use the rmstdlist command instead. The users maestro and root in UNIX®, and Administrator in Windows® can remove any file. Other users can remove only files associated with their own jobs.

The following script, included in a scheduled job in UNIX®, removes the job's standard list file if there are no errors:

#Remove the stdlist for this job:
if grep -i error $UNISON_STDLIST
exit 1
ˋmaestroˋ/bin/delete $UNISON_STDLIST

The standard configuration script, jobmanrc, sets the variable UNISON_STDLIST to the name of the job standard list file. For more information about jobmanrc, see Customizing job processing on a UNIX workstation - jobmanrc.
