Deleting versioned views from geodatabase

What is the procedure for deleting versioned views from geodatabase? Is there any out-of-the-box tool / utility readily available for doing this in ArcGIS Desktop?

We recently migrated from ArcGIS desktop 10.1 to 10.6.1 and would like to recreate all the versioned views in database which has suffix "_VW" (supported in 10.1) with the suffix "_EVW" (10.6.1 supported format)

FAQ: Can a multiversioned view be deleted without leaving an entry in the table registry? 

Not aware of a way to delete a versioned view without the SDE command line tools.

You probably have the option of:

  • Un-registering all data as Versioned and Re-register them as Versioned, or
  • Delete all versioned views at the 10.1 level using the SDE Command line tools --> Migrate to 10.6.1 --> re-create all the Versioned views
