Data Store Delete Selected Rows Action

The Data Store Delete Selected Rows Action provides a way to delete selected rows of a Custom Data Object. When run, the action will delete the selected rows from view immediately, and will permanently remove the data 30 days later.

This action is similar to the Delete button in a Modal Project, if the Delete task has been enabled. The main difference is that the Delete button can only delete one item at a time while the Data Store Delete Selected Rows Action can delete several at the same time.

Using the Action

  1. In Design, open a project and use the actions icon to show the Actions panel.

  2. Drag and drop the Data Store Delete Selected Rows action onto the finish section.

  3. Once added, configure the action inputs as per the table below:

Input

Description

Data Object ObjectID (Required)

This should always select the ObjectID field.

Note: The 'Answer Value' option should be selected for the Action Input Type.

Mode

There are two mode values available:

Note: Both Test and Delete should always be paired with Data Object ObjectID, otherwise the action will fail.

  • Test - Test Mode provides a way to test the action but will not actually delete the selected data.
  • Delete – Delete Mode provides informational value that shows that this action will delete the selected rows.

Additionally, because Data Store Delete Selected Rows Action is a destructive action, SmartIQ has built in some precautionary measures like Undo and Test Mode.

Undo Button

Users with access to the Management log in Manage can Undo the delete action within 30 days or before the system permanently deletes the data.

Test Mode

Test Mode provides a way to test the action without actually deleting the selected data. The Test Mode should always be paired with the Data Object ObjectID or the action will fail.

👍

Recommendation

Use a runtime action like Display Message action to show how many rows would have been deleted in Test Mode. Without this, the only indication that the Data Store Delete Selected Rows Action has worked is the Completed Status in Manage > Management Console.
