Deleting OpsMgr Attributes

Have you ever looked for a way to delete an Attribute you created (by accident)? I did today, when I was making some documentation about a Management Pack I created.

As you can see there is no Delete option in the Authoring Pane of the OpsMgr Console.

So what’s the easiest and fasted way to delete an OpsMgr Attribute?

Answer: Using the Authoring Console.

How?

  1. Backup Management Pack where Attribute is saved in case you need to restore!
  2. Open Authoring Console
  3. Import Management Pack from Management Group where you saved the Attribute (in my case the Default MP)
