Deployment process - File deletion scenario

Hello guys,

I have been playing around with the deployment tools from Ensemble (mostly based on this article , but so far the one thing I still couldn't figure out is how to release the fact that I deleted files/components from my source production and that will get reflected in my target production.

Basically the target production has got A, B, C and D. Source has got A and B, because C and D aren't needed anymore. How do I generate a deployment XML with these information and once I release in the target production, Healthshare will get rid of C and D?

I couldn't find any info in the above documentation, so any tips would be more than welcome.

I have come across a few bugs in the deployment tool in the past and I hope this isn't another one or a lack of the functionality I need.

Hi Murillo

While no UI exists to create a deployment file to specify host items to remove it is possible to use the APIs to create such a deployment file  - see the last example in the top section of the class documentation for Ens.Deployment.Utils. This is the same removal mechanism used when creating the rollback mechanism.
