  </ci>

</GRLoader>



Where

value 1 = is inactive
value 0 = Active.
uuid= The UUID of the CI to deactivate

Example:

Customer needs to inactive CI called "CI_test":

1. select the UUID from CI_test

 select own_resource_uuid from ca_owned_resource where resource_name like 'CI_test'
 
User-added image


2. Build the xml with the value gotten from step 1, called load.xml
    

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>

<GRLoader>

  <ci>

    <id>64A20F2717D1A043A68FBA4740A4216B</id>

    <delete_flag>1</delete_flag>

  </ci>
