You can use Control Center to disable a plug-in, but this action does not remove the plug-in file from the Orchestrator Appliance file system. To remove the plug-in file, you must log in to the Orchestrator appliance and remove the plug-in file manually.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator Appliance as root over SSH.
  2. Open the /etc/vco/app-server/plugins/_VSOPluginInstallationVersion.xml file with a text editor.
    1. Delete the line of code that corresponds to the plug-in that you want to remove.
  3. Navigate to /var/lib/vco/app-server/plugins.
  4. Delete the .dar archives that contain the plug-in that you want to remove.
  5. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.

    The plug-in is removed from Control Center.

  6. Log in to the Orchestrator client.
  7. Select Administer from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner.
  8. Click the Packages view.
  9. Right-click the package that you want to delete, and select Delete element with content.
    Note:

    Orchestrator elements that are locked in the read-only state, for example workflows in the standard library, are not deleted.

  10. Click Delete all.
  11. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.

Results

You removed all custom workflows, actions, policies, configurations, settings, and resources related to the plug-in.
