Provide an option to totally disable the new Recycle Bin functionality of ALM

Status: New Idea

Please provide an option to totally disable the new Recycle bin functionality implemented ALM. We have already developed and implemented more comprehensive recycler solution to our ALM environment.

These changes we are looking for:

  • The recycle bin folder should not be visible in Test Plan and Test Lab tree structure (now it is there as default).
  • The 'Recycle and Restore' user permissions in Test Plan should not be linked to 'Test case delete' and 'Test folder delete' permissions. 
    • In case you disable 'Recycle and Restore' now also the delete permissions are disabled, that linkage should be removed. Delete permissions should remain.
  • The 'Recycle and Restore' user permissions in Test Lab should not be linked to 'Test set delete' and 'Test set folder delete' permissions. 
    • In case you disable 'Recycle and Restore' now also the delete permissions are disabled, that linkage should be removed. Delete permissions should remain.

 .

Thanks in advance.

  • This new OT recycle bin functionality implemented to ALM24.1 is actually not any 'life saver' for persons accidentally deleting items. Because if you have delete test case permissions you are still able to delete the test case just like that, the item will not go automatically to recycle bin folder which would be the 'life saver' option in this case. Who would remember to use 'move to recycle bin' functionality instead of Delete-button if you would like to delete items?
