Issue/Introduction

Once you've extended a Vendor Certification, is there a way to remove the extension?

Environment

Release : 20.2

Component : PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT INTEGRATIONS

Resolution

If you need to remove the extension, put back the empty extension (i.e the original XML you get when you first do a get before adding the custom parts).

For example, per:

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/performance-management/20-2/building/self-certification/create-or-extend-vendor-certifications.html#concept.dita_31e26fc867a81c1ee325329cdefe8bf3aff8f002_GetaVendorCertificationXMLTemplate

To get the original template for an extension you would have done a get on:

http://da_hostname:8581/typecatalog/certifications/snmp/extension/cert_name

That looks similar to:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<DataModel namespace="http://im.ca.com/certifications/snmp" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="SNMPCertificationFacet.xsd">
  <Author>CA</Author>
  <Version>VERSION</Version>
  <FacetType name="CERT_INTERNAL_NAME" descriptorClass="com.ca.im.core.datamodel.certs.CertificationFacetDescriptorImpl">
    <FacetOf namespace="http://im.ca.com/core" name="Item" />
  </FacetType>
</DataModel>

Where the VERSION and CERT_INTERNAL_NAME are specific to the Vendor certification being extended.

If you PUT the original extension template back to the extension URL per :

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/performance-management/20-2/building/self-certification/create-or-extend-vendor-certifications.html#concept.dita_31e26fc867a81c1ee325329cdefe8bf3aff8f002_ImporttheCustomVendorCertification

This will reset the extension.

Note the Vendor Certification will still say FACTORY EXTENDED when viewing in the UI.
