You want to delete ComponentHierarchy pages from your publish instance. You do not want to connect via CQDE to your publish (or you do not have a CDQE connection to your publish instance).
To delete them from the publish, do the following:
- create a package.
- Specify which component hierarchy pages you want to delete. For example, /apps/designground/templates/*/componenthierarchy is for all the component hierarchies under designground application.
Once you have created the package, you can use it to clear the component hierarchy pages using package deploy:
- Delete the component hierarchies from your authoring instance.
- Re-create the package.
- Deploy the package to the publish instance.
