Deleting a Monitoring Policy

If you no longer need to monitor the data specified in a monitoring policy, you can delete the policy from the CommCell Console. When you delete a monitoring policy, the collected data is deleted from the CommServe database.

If you accidentally delete a policy, you can retrieve it if you saved the policy configuration in a script. For more information, see Restoring a Monitoring Policy Using the Command Line.

Before You Begin

If the policy you want to delete is monitored from a dashboard in the Log Monitoring application on the Web Console, you should delete the saved searches directly related to the policy. After you delete the policy, saved searches will display "No data found."


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies and click Monitoring Policies.
  2. Right-click the monitoring_policy and click Delete.
  3. In the Confirm Delete window, click Yes.
