We have unused Publication targets which needs to be deleted and we thought of using the new 2013 Sp1 feature of decommission the targets. We used the below method


This line executes successfully without any error but the publication target doesn't get deleted. Do we need to perform any other extra steps?


The documentation states:

Decommissions (takes out of service) a Publication Target, so it can be deleted afterwards.

I would therefore assume that, yes, you need to delete it afterwards yourself.

Something like:


after calling DecommissionPublicationTarget() should be sufficient.


The alternative is to use PowerShell and run:

Clear-TcmPublicationTarget tcm:x-x-x
