As we’ve started using the Life Cycle Management Pack we’ve started to accumulate some baggage in our Software Library.  You can find yours by going to the Saved Patches page under the Patches and Provisioing menu.

saved_patches_01

 

You can get the same results with emcli search_patches -swlib.  Pipe it through sort -n to display in patch number order. 

> emcli search_patches -swlib | sort -n

You can also dump those results to a csv file for reporting (or blogging) like this:

> emcli search_patches -swlib -format=name:csv | sort -n

Then, if you are adventurous (I am not), you can remove a patch from the Software Library with emcli delete_patches verb.  After several minutes of copying and pasting fields from search_patches results for required values -patch_name, – release, and –platform into the delete_patches command I wasn’t able to get it to work.  

The GUI works great.  

  • On the Saved Patches page, select the patch you want to remove
  • Press the Big Red X and confirm your choice
  • Be careful not to click on the Patch Name hyperlink — click anywhere else on that line to select the patch and also to activate the Big Red X.
