2531269 - Is it possible to delete Lynda contents in LMS?


You do not want to import some Lynda Contents (or any other content networks) to LMS hence you want them to be deleted or deactivated in the system.


Successfactors Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue



Via LMS UI, this is not possible. The data needs to be manually modified from the database table PA_OCN_COURSE, and that is out-of-scope for us.

We do not manually modify any data in the database unless LMS was the one who introduced the issue (e.g. system glitch, bug, etc.).

In addition, we would like to emphasize that LMS only receives data received from Lynda including creation of and update on Lynda contents. Deletion cannot be done automatically via this integration.


If you wish to delete courses from database table PA_OCN_COURSE, you will need to go through our Professional Services (requires additional cost).

Please reach out to the PS team through your CSM.
