I'm running Enterprise 10.8.1 and I see that there are all sorts of Apps and Webmaps put there (by default?) by ESRI. Many of the items server no real purpose as they just link back to the ESRI product pages. There is even duplicates of some items.
Does anyone know how or when these get created?
In an ideal world I'd like to delete these from Portal but I can't because I don't own them. Has anyone else run into this issue and if so, is there a fix? I guess last resort might be to delete the item folders from the Portal install but I'm not sure I'm ready to try that just yet.
Thanks in advance.
I do not believe that you can. They're sort of "double-delete-protected", in a way that you can't modify. You can't reassign ownership or remove these items.
There might be a way to get into the back-end and remove these, but that would be ill-advised.
Hi Sean, there are a couple of options.
