Delete unwanted test files from the UNIX server

Delete  test files from the UNIX/application server using function module


Many times while performing the unit testing we create the n number of test files on the UNIX server. Once we complete the unit testing its difficult to find out the latest file in those N numbers of test files.

This article elaborates you, how the unwanted test files will be deleted from the Application server.

2.      2. Now I wanted to delete these files in one click. For this go to SE37 and enter the function module name ‘FMCT_DELETE_UNIXFILE’


3.      3. Execute the function module and enter the file path which you want to delete the files.

In this way we can delete the test files from the Application server without writing a single line of code.
