Put a CI in "is candidate for deletion"

Hi,

Is there a way to put a CI in status "is candidate for deletion" manually?
Although I believe in the self maintaining mechanisms of uCMDB, in case of controlled decommissioning of a CI, I don't want to wait for 7 days (our discovery timeout is set to 7 days) before a CI is marked as "is candidate for deletion". 

Deleting the CI manually is not an option. We are using uCMDB to feed another CMDB, and we need the "is candidate for deletion" state to keep in sync with the other CMDB.

Thanks
Jim

Hi there Jim,

from where do you bring those nodes? Are they VMs?

If yes, we can use the virtualization adapters to mark them for deletion.

Kind regards,

Hi Bodgan

There are indeed VM's we would like to mark as candidate for deletion.
But if possible, I would like to use that mechanism for other CI-types as well.

Thanks
Jim

For VMs it's easy because there are few discovery jobs that will report them.

For other CITs you will have to catalog who creates them and start from those adapters.
