Delete Multiple Unwanted Packages in AEM Instances at Once

How many of us would prefer to work with a faster AEM instance without spending a dime on the infrastructure? All of us would.

So, to take away all your hassles related to package deletion, we present you with a tool that will enable you to perform bulk package purging.

Purpose:

To get a list of packages which are consuming maximum size on an AEM instance and to have the ability to delete multiple packages at once.

Implementation:

At Argil DX, we have made a tool to delete multiple packages of AEM with a single click of a button. This tool provides a simplified console to monitor and manage AEM Packages, the list of packages will be sorted by size and collected according to their package group.

 

To delete package(s), just select their respective checkboxes and click on ‘Delete’ button and all the selected packages will be deleted in a moment. Along with delete operation, we can also download any package for backup before deleting it.

Packages are listed in two sections – the first section named ‘All’ contains all the packages and the second section contains the packages collected based on their package-group. The number against the name of each set represents the number of packages in it.

 

For reporting and documenting purposes, package lists can be exported in PDF and Excel formats by clicking on the ‘Excel’ and ‘PDF’ buttons on the top of every list.
