Uninstall a Taxonomy, Reset
Uninstall a taxonomy
You can uninstall taxonomies using either the Taxonomy Manager GUI or by sending Taxonomy Manager the uninstall instructions via the command line.
|Note:||If the taxonomy you want to uninstall references other taxonomies, then the referenced taxonomies are also uninstalled.|
In the GUI
To uninstall taxonomies in the Taxonomy Manager GUI, clear their check boxes and click Apply. The selected taxonomies and their referenced taxonomies will be uninstalled.
To uninstall all taxonomies, click Deselect All and click Apply.
On the CLI
To uninstall taxonomies via the command line, run the uninstall command:
taxonomymanager.exe uninstall [options] Taxonomy+
where each Taxonomy argument is a taxonomy you want to uninstall or a .altova_taxonomies file. A taxonomy is specified by an identifier that has a format of <name>-<version>. (The identifiers of taxonomies are displayed when you run the list command.) You can enter as many taxonomies as you like. For details, see the description of the uninstall command.
|Note:||On Linux or macOS, use the sudo ./taxonomymanager command.|
Reset Taxonomy Manager
You can reset Taxonomy Manager. This removes all installed taxonomies and the cache directory.
•In the GUI, click Reset Selection.
•On the CLI, run the reset command.
After running this command, make sure to run the initialize command in order to recreate the cache directory. Alternatively, run the reset command with the -i option.
Note that reset -i restores the original installation of the product, so it is recommended that you run the update command after performing a reset. Alternatively, run the reset command with the -i and -u options.
