Removing Attributes From Tests
We are trying to clean up our attributes. We can’t delete them until they are removed from all tests that have them. Is there a quick way to remove an attribute from all tests across folders. If the only way is thru a sql update, does anyone know the statement to run?
it is not recommended to alter the database directly with an update query. This can cause database inconsistencies, and this would also not be supported approach.
it is recommended to deactivate the attribute. When you try to delete an attribute that is assigned to a test, SCTM will provide a list of the tests that the attribute is assigned to. These can then be removed manually from the test before safely deleting the attribute.
