Deleting a Service Instance - ABO

Back Office User Guide

Reference Guide

Deleting a service instance in AFS-BO breaks the links between the service in AFS-BO and the actual service in AFS.

The Back Office requires a service and its instance to activate functions about the service. A service without a declared instance is useless in AFS-BO. After deleting a service instance, it is necessary to recreate it as described in Creating a Service Instance

In the Administration screen, for a selected organization, a selected project, and a selected service, the table displays the list of the associated instances. When an instance is selected, the Modify the Instance command displays the MODIFY SERVICE INSTANCE dialog box. The Delete command must be chosen to delete the instance.


A click in the confirmation box definitely deletes the instance in AFS-BO. The table in the Administration screen is updated at the projects, services, and instances levels.
