Over the years we have had many requests from clients asking why when they delete an attachment from within Maximo it does not remove the document from the physical location as well. In the past our only answer has been that the architecture cannot support this feature and Maximo will only remove the association from the record to the physical document. Now with Automation Scripting this has changed. Our development team has released documentation on how this can be accomplished with our scripting application. I have attached a link to the document below. Please keep in mind this suggestion should be tried in a test environment first before moving to your production system.
