How to soft-delete a process map

If you are a map manager or map owner, you can delete a map.  To delete a map, you highlight the map you want to delete and click on "Soft delete map" (button in red below). It is not permanently deleted, but moved to the DELETED folder. It can be restored from the DELETED folder back to the ACTIVE folder within 30 days. After this, the map will be deleted permanently from the system.

Restoring maps
