We have about 15 "test" work items entered into our work item tracking DB. Beth mentioned that it would be possible to delete the DB and start fresh with work items, as long as we didn't do any check in that linked back to work items.

So of course we DID do one test check in associated with a couple of work items, just to see how things worked.

Is it still be possible to delete the work items DB to start fresh? We're OK with a broken or incorrect link dues to this test check in. We're NOT OK with corrupting our Vault code repository.

A good way to go would be to perform a backup of your sgdragnet database first. Then uninstall Vault, delete the database, and then reinstall Vault which will create a new sgdragnet. Then test just getting into Vault and around. Perform a Show History on the item you had checked in and so on.

Without the sgdragnet database you will have to recreate projects, milestones, and custom fields.
