OK. So we're in 8.5 but I don't think that's of any consequence.
- a BPT/TopType of Live,Stage
- a BPT/TopType of SomethingElse
We want to move to a single BPT showing Live, Stage, SomethingElse.
Now, we unpublished the SomethingElse, we removed the mappings, we removed from the SomethingElse TopType and removed the SomethingElse BPT.
Now we want to Add/Set or ?? the Purpose SomethingElse to our one and only TopType (we can look to rename it and all that jazz later).
Of course, it's in use - but this means we can't, apparently, add to it. This thought compounded after reading this answer/comments on Add EnvironmentPurpose to existing TtmCdTopologyType.
We are doing this in PRD and we have, as noted above, LIVE and STAGE. Aside from the fact there are about 250,000 items to (un)publish in all - as the name suggests - these are LIVE and STAGE and we're not unpublishing.
Now, I can see that we could add the Purpose SomethingElse to the comma-delimited list of Env purposes in the
Tridion.TopologyManager.Data.CdTopologyTypeData but, of course, this is a database table and something I'm not recommending we touch without Support (if you're reading this - thanks for picking up the call).
Any creative ideas or even better something I've simply missed?
