This article provides information regarding generic questions in the activated version of AdminStudio using Application Catalogs like How many folders can be created in the application catalog, what is the maximum number of packages/applications that can be added to each folder if multiple Catalogs are created, how do you delete a Catalog, etc.
Steps to Reproduce
Q1. How many folders can be created in the catalog?
If it is only creating independent folders, there are no limitations as such. But if a hierarchical folder structure needs to be created, which is same as the windows default supported file path limitations (Maximum path length should not exceed 260 characters based on the Operating System on which AdminStudio is Installed)
Q2. What is the maximum number of packages/applications that can be added to each folder?
As long as the database has enough space there are no restrictions on the number of packages or applications which can be imported into the application catalog.
Q3. If multiple Catalogs are created, how do you delete a Catalogue? (ie: Is there anywhere in the AS UI to delete a Catalogue? Or can this only be done by an SQL Server DBA?)
No there is no UI option available currently to delete the catalog from Application Manager. One has to connect to the database server and delete the catalog by using SQL server management Studio or by running SQL scripts to delete the databases over there. This only is done by a SQL Server DBA.
