Use the remove_file method to remove user installed files or scripts from Vantage.

Required arguments:
  • file_identifier specifies the name associated with the user installed file. It cannot have a database name associated with it, as the file is always installed in the current database.
  • force_remove specifies if system should check for the file being used before removing it.
    • If set to True, then the file is removed even if it is being executed.
    • If set to False, which is the default value, then an error is thrown if it is being executed.
