I'm sure others have run into this.

I created a release 1.0.0 and realized that one of the variables had no value (which the interface should have prevented).

So I wanted to delete that release. There is no way to do that.

Yeah, me too. I was trying to do a release, making several failed attempts, and when I looked at the target site, each failure had added 72MB of files. ...and this was for a release that failed so all this stuff should have been rolled back entirely. Imagine what this sort of stuff would do to the DBAs calculations for storage space on a production system!

I'm hoping for at least a way to archive old releases, instead of having to do it manually which I do right now

Hi

We're planning to add the ability to delete a release next month.

I've attached a link below to the designs we have come up with for this feature. You'll be able to delete a single release or delete multiple releases. We'd be really interested to hear if you feel this will meet your requirements.

Best regards
Chris

Glad to see this moving forward.

In my opinion, screens 1 and 2 (single delete button at the top) makes the most sense, allowing the user to review the release details before deleting.

I don't think the use case for deleting multiple releases is as compelling.

Hi

Just wanted to update this thread to say we added the ability to delete a release in DM version 2.3.14. This version was released on 19th December 2013.
    * Users with the ‘Project Administrator’ permission can now delete releases
    * Multiple releases can be deleted from the project releases page
    * The version numbers of deleted releases can be reused
    * Deployment logs are retained and reference the deleted release

We'd be really keen to hear what you think of the new functionality.

Best regards,
Chris
