Deleting: I just want this relationship or person to go away!

You need to delete when you find the same person has been set up with two PUIDs (or more, heaven forbid!), and the relationship for this system ID is a duplicate and is being deleted from the Operational system.

Start by noting which PUID to keep, and which PUID to be dropped. You will drop the PUID whose relationship is for the operational System ID which is being deleted from the Operational System.

Display the relationship(s) for the PUID to be dropped, on the Purdue Person Display page. Click the "Delete" link next to the (first) relationship, and then verify that you wish to delete this relationship. This will delete the relationship from this PUID, and put the information into a Suspense record.

Open up the Purdue Person - Process Suspended Records page for the relationship which was deleted. This list will have an entry with today's date, showing information for the relationship which was deleted.

Click on the name link to show the matches, and click on the link to "Delete the "Searching for:" record (This data is in error, and I will fix the data in the operational system.)".

This will delete the Suspense entry, and the "Delete" process is complete.
