Use this command to delete duplicate instances of components that are displayed on the Administration > Components tab. You can also use this command to delete instances of components that are uninstalled or removed from the deployment.

This command only removes the component from the database; it does not uninstall the component. So if you restart the service for the BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics Server, the deleted component is again visible on the product UI.
