Uninstall a schema

You can uninstall schemas using either the Schema Manager GUI or by sending Schema Manager the uninstall instructions via the command line.


Note:If the schema you want to uninstall references other schemas, then the referenced schemas are also uninstalled.



In the GUI

To uninstall schemas in the Schema Manager GUI, clear their check boxes and click Apply. The selected schemas and their referenced schemas will be uninstalled.


To uninstall all schemas, click Deselect All and click Apply.



On the CLI

To uninstall schemas via the command line, run the uninstall command:


xmlschemamanager.exe uninstall [options] Schema+


where each Schema argument is a schema you want to uninstall or a .altova_xmlschemas file. A schema is specified by an identifier that has a format of <name>-<version>. (The identifiers of schemas are displayed when you run the list command.) You can enter as many schemas as you like. For details, see the description of the uninstall command.


Note:On Linux or macOS, use the sudo ./xmlschemamanager command.


Reset Schema Manager

You can reset Schema Manager. This removes all installed schemas 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 to run the update command after performing a reset. Alternatively, run the reset command with the -i and -u options.
