  • Mass delete unused reports

    Over time in SBM the number of reports is ever growing. There are two issues related to that: 1. with a huge volume of reports (most of whihc are never used) the discoverability of useful reports is low 2. at some point performance is bound to be affected if there are thounsands of unused reports in the system In the analytics sections there is already a may to search for unused reports for a certain time window, it would be useful to be able to delete these reports en masse.

    While obviously most deployment tasks should be fully automatic, there are many use cases for manual tasks. We find that the current Release Package interface does not allow for smooth interaction with manual tasks and would like to propose a standardized way of how to integrate task level interactions directly on the release package form.
