How to: Delete a Member or Collection by Using tblStgMemberAttribute (Master Data Services)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

In Master Data Services, you can use the staging process to delete leaf members, consolidated members, or collections.

In the Master Data Services database, each member and collection has an attribute named MDMMemberStatus. When you delete a member or collection, the value of this attribute changes from Active to De-Activated and the code is changed to a 32-character GUID.

To perform this procedure:

To delete a member or collection

  1. Prepare the members or collections for import into the mdm.tblStgMemberAttribute table in the Master Data Services database. For any member or collection that you want to delete, use MDMMemberStatus for AttributeName and De-Activated for AttributeValue. For more information and an example, see Attributes Staging Table (Master Data Services).

  2. Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the Database Engine instance for your Master Data Services database.

  3. Import the data into mdm.tblStgMemberAttribute. For information about importing data into a database by using SQL Server Integration Services, see How to: Run the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard.

  4. After you successfully import the data, in Master Data Manager, click Integration Management.

  5. In the Unbatched Staging Records pane, from the Model list, select the model that contains records you want to import.

  6. From the Version list, select a version. The version must have the Status of Open or Locked.

  7. Confirm that the displayed number of records matches the number of records you plan to import. If it does not, see Troubleshooting the Staging Process (Master Data Services).

  8. Click Process unbatched data. In the Staging Batches pane, the value in the Status column changes to Queued to Run.

    Note Note

    The staging queue runs automatically at intervals based on the Staging batch interval set in Master Data Services Configuration Manager. For more information, see System Settings (Master Data Services).

  9. The import is complete when the value in the Status column is Not Running. You can refresh the page to view the updated status by clicking Import on the menu bar.
