As the name suggests, the Permanently Delete option is exercised when the authorized user(s) wants to permanently delete any item (Metadata + bitstreams) from the repository.
Apart from permanently deleting an item, options like “Withdraw item from repository” and “Make item Private” can temporarily help disable the content access.
Item Delete Process
Step 1: Login using your credentials
Step 2: Go to the target Item using a convenient method i.e.
- Using search & filters options
- Browsing through Communities & Collections
- Browsing using Metadata elements listed under the Browse menu
Step 3: Click on the “Edit” button as highlighted on the screen below. This button will appear to the user having edit rights on the target item.
Step 4: Click the “Permanently Delete” Button to delete the item.
Step 5: Click on the Delete button on the confirmation screen. Should you want to continue with deletion, click on cancel to cancel the Permanent deletion of the item from DSpace.
