Sometimes, there are issues deleting elements from the inventory which was originally synced from CA Spectrum for one or more tenants. This may occur due to network problems or server down when a device was being updated and disrupting the synchronisation between the data source and CAPC. In these situations, to delete a device requires investigation in the dst_device table of CAPC's MySQL (netqosportal) DB to check the data source from which it came.
