Remove taxonomy terms from a taxonomy

Terms must be removed one at a time.

Note: When changes are made to a taxonomy, they are not automatically applied through all topics and maps where the changed term would apply. Taxonomy terms must be updated to the topics and maps where they would apply individually.
  1. In the Taxonomy Terms view, right-click the root node of the taxonomy.
  2. Select Edit Taxonomy.
    The taxonomy is locked, and the word [EDITING] appears beside it.
  3. Right-click the term you want to delete and select Delete Term.
  4. Click OK.
    Both the Human Readable and Vocabulary Term Value are removed from the taxonomy structure.
  5. Repeat for each term you want to delete within the editable taxonomy.
  6. Right-click the root node of the taxonomy and select Save Taxonomy to save your changes.
