How will this idea be used?

As part of any software development life cycle, our Sponsor users will test PEM acitvities creating versions that will use Custom Fields, Test User Accounts, Certificates, API definitions, files and logos in the Library, etc. Once the activity is tested and ready to roll out, they may not need most of the objects created. However, PEM does not allow to delete most of these. Activities cannot be versioned like we do for Business Processes in B2Bi. This creates a lot of clutter in the PEM system. Purge Agent does not clean up any of these objects either. PEM should be enhanced to allow our customers to clean up clutter. Of course, the clean up should consider data integrity and allow delete of objects that are not in use anymore and should have a cascading affect of removing all objects that no longer are required if an activity is deleted.
