Definition Trashcan Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?

From X Manager

  • Click File > Definition Trashcan, or select the Definition Trashcan toolbar button:


    • From the Administrative Console, click File > Trashcan.

The Definition Trashcan provides temporary storage for definitions that you chose to delete. Items in the Trashcan remain there until you permanently delete them from the Reflection X database, or until you undelete and restore them to their original location. You can also use the option in the Preferences dialog box to Empty trash at exit.


To export a definition and then import it again, you must delete the definition you exported, and you must also empty the trashcan before the import can proceed.
