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. Delete the plug-in from the Orchestrator Appliance.
    1. Log in to the Orchestrator Appliance over SSH as root.
    2. Open the /etc/vco/app-server/plugins/_VSOPluginInstallationVersion.xml file with a text editor.
    3. Delete the line of code that corresponds to the plug-in that you want to remove.
    4. Navigate to the /var/lib/vco/app-server/plugins directory.
    5. Delete the .dar archives that contain the plug-in that you want to remove.
  2. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.
    service vco-configurator restart && service vco-server restart
  3. Log in to Control Center as root.
  4. In the Manage Plug-Ins page, verify that the plug-in is removed.
  5. Through the Orchestrator client, delete the packages and folders that are related to the plug-in.
    1. Log in to the Orchestrator client.
    2. Select Design from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner.
    3. Click the Packages view.
    4. 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.

    5. From the Tools menu in the upper-right corner, select User preferences.

      The Preferences context menu opens.

    6. On the General page, select the Delete non empty folder permitted check box.

      You can now delete an entire folder, including its subfolders and workflows, with a single click.

    7. Click the Workflow view.
    8. Delete the folder of the plug-in that you want to remove.
    9. Click the Actions view.
    10. Delete the action modules of the plug-in that you want to remove.
  6. Restart the vRealize Orchestrator services.
