Altova StyleVision 2024 Enterprise Edition

This command uninstalls one or more taxonomies. By default, any taxonomies referenced by the current one are uninstalled as well. To uninstall just the current taxonomy and keep the referenced taxonomies, set the option --k.



<exec> uninstall [options] Taxonomy+


To uninstall multiple taxonomies, add the Taxonomy argument multiple times.


The Taxonomy argument is one of the following:


A taxonomy identifier (having a format of <name>-<version>, for example: eba-2.10). To find out the taxonomy identifiers of the taxonomies that are installed, run the list -i command. You can also use an abbreviated taxonomy name if it is unique, for example eba. If you use an abbreviated name, then all taxonomies that contain the abbreviation in its name will be uninstalled.

The path to a .altova_taxonomies file downloaded from the Altova website. For information about these files, see Introduction to TaxonomyManager: How It Works.
