CA Service Desk Manager


Run the following steps to have all scoreboards reset:

  1. Open a Command Prompt on the box where Service Desk is installed;
  2. Run the following command to take a backup of the table where the Scoreboard is registered:
    pdm_extract User_Query > usq_backup.dat
  3. Run the following command to extract the scoreboard queries for all users:
    pdm_extract -f "Select * from User_Query where obj_persid like 'cnt%'" > Users.dat 
  4. Run the following command to remove the scoreboard queries from the table:
    pdm_load -v -r -f Users.dat
    The -v flag will display each action taken by the command above. If you prefer, you can run the command as follows to keep the output for reference:
    pdm_load -v -r -f Users.dat > users_deleted.out
  5. Run the following command to refresh Service Desk cache:
    pdm_cache_refresh -t User_Query
    The next login done by any user will show the Default Scoreboard defined to his Access Type.
