    I am not sure about removing the workflow databases.  Is there a specific problem or reason for the need to remove those tables?

     

    Please review the below.  This might help you as well:

     

    How do I decouple Workpoint monitors from IM appli - CA Knowledge 

     

    You might also want to disable history on workflow processes.  Open the process definition in Workpoint Designer and uncheck the Job, Node, WorkItem, Transition, Job Alert and Work Item Alert history.

     

    Thanks.

    I have reviewed this further.  There is not a way to remove the Workflow database.

    I agree with Scott, there is no supported / certified way to remove the WPDS DB side of the deployment, as the configuration for such is embedded in quite few files.

    You could

    1. Uncheck WF checkbox in the Management Console > Advanced Settings > Workflow > Enabled

    2. You could reference the WPDS datasource to one of the other DBs (Object Store / Snapshot etc). So while the tables will reside there in the nominated DB, it will not be populated with data as not in use.

     

    Hope this helps
