Removing or disabling objects

Object Removal options enable you to delete or disable objects from a Form and Related migration.

Objects that can be disabled:

  • Active links
  • Escalations
  • Filters

Objects that can be deleted:

  • Active links
  • Escalations
  • Filters
  • Filter guides
  • Active link guides
  • Web services

BMC Remedy Migrator deletes or disables objects only on the destination server as part of a Forms and Related migration. For example, if you migrate Form 1 from Server A to Server B, BMC Remedy Migrator deletes or disables Active Link x and Filter x from Server B.


Object Removal options do not apply to locked workflow.

Migration object removal example

During a Forms and Related Objects migration, any objects related to a form that exist on the destination but not on the source can be deleted, disabled, or ignored on the destination when the migration takes place. If you specify that objects on the source should be deleted, BMC Remedy Migrator backs up those objects before deleting them (see Backing up destination server).


Forms are never deleted during migrations.

The default setting for these options is to disable all objects.
