Lab 7.1: Deleting a topology

Deleting a topology will also delete any relying Interception Rules. The deletion process performs a complex set of REST-based tasks, therefore only one topology can be deleted at a time. In the SSLO UI, select a topology and click the Delete button. Confirm that both the topology and respective interception rules are removed.

Deleting other objects

While deleting a topology also removes its respective interception rules, it does not remove the other objects - services, service chains, security policies and SSL settings. These can all be removed individually, however must be deleted in a hierarchical order. Once the topology and interception rules have been deleted,

  • SSL Settings can be deleted any time
  • Delete any unused Security Policies
  • Delete any unused Service Chains
  • Delete any unused Services

Deleting everything

To completely remove the SSLO configuration and start from scratch:

  1. In the SSLO UI

    • click Delete Configurations and then click OK.


    This process will take some time as SSLO walks through all of the objects and dependencies to remove all configurations.

  2. Under the iApps menu ‣ Application Services ‣ Applications LX

    • "un-deploy" any remaining SSL orchestrator objects. If using any other Guided Configuration engine (ex. Access GC), ensure that only SSLO objects are deleted here.
  3. Under the iApps menu ‣ Templates ‣ Templates LX

    • Delete all of the SSL Orchestrator templates.
  4. Under the iApps menu ‣ Package management LX

    • Delete the SSL Orchestrator package.


    The next time the SSL Orchestrator configuration menu is accessed, SSLO will automatically restore the on-box package.
