Should be able to Delete connections or Deactivate

Not possible to delete connections which have run - should be able to deactivate and activate

Once a connection has been deactivated it should be possible to delete it

it's a risk having old connections which should NOT be run - because it's not possible to rename them either:(

When a connection is no longer being used, would like to be able to either delete or rename the connection to archive it.

Totally agree that we should be able to delete connections....clutters up and has potential to cause confusion and problems.

This is very much needed, hope they have this implemented in the next version.

I agree connections that are deactivated should be able to be deleted. 

If Micro Focus is concerned about the risk that connections could be deleted in error, then I recommend they create a flag with options Test and Production (or something similar).  A connection flagged as "Test" enables the Delete function and a connection flagged as "Production" disables the Delete function.

Right now, we have about four "Test" connections we need and want to delete.

I don't understand why we're having to lobby for such obviously needed functionality; we're on v4 already...

MF - Connect Core sorely needs a way to delete existing connections we don't need anymore.  Please make this happen in the next patch.

I think its a useful feature to delete a connection for good house keeping and agree to flagging for better saftely before deleting any connection.

Thanks

Delete feature was added in 4.3, but only on connections which haven't run yet......so still the most important missing

Hah-  yes, which is unfortunately typical of MF enhancements; 90% implemented, 50% useful.

Which reminds me, I need to add an ER to get some useful User features in Connect.  I don't follow the purpose of users if all of them can view/access all available connections.  Certain users may not need to know the business of other connections.
