Cleaning the product library (Defense Mapping)

Once you have set up the product library, there are basic processes that can be used to maintain the database.

The Cleanup command removes files that are not referenced by (linked to) any part of the product library and replaces missing/corrupt control files such as template or product MXDs. For instance, you could have a file stored in the product library that is not associated with any of the components and once the command is run, it deletes it.

The Cleanup command performs the following:


Only the admin/schema owner can run the cleanup process.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. If your product library is stored in an enterprise geodatabase, ensure that all users are disconnected.
  3. If necessary, open the Product Library window by clicking Customize > Production > Product Library on the main menu.

    A tree view of the product library appears.
