Delete locker password entries in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager 8.x

As of now,  vRealize Lifecycle Manager 8.x do not have the UI option to delete the locker passwords from vRSLCM UI. The only option is to remove it via API. 

Step 1: For test purpose, I created a dummy credentials

Step 2 : Login to vRSLCM via Postman

  • If the login is successful, you will notice a "Login successfully"
Step 3: Copy the Authorization header

Step 4: List the existing passwords by running a GET 


  • Copy the "vmid" of the password you would like to delete 

Step 5 : Run the DELETE from CLI 

Note: this is not possible from the REST API client applications

curl -X DELETE 'http://localhost:8080/lcm/locker/api/passwords/79851802-b01e-4a5f-b8c5-2436f126cdcc' -H 'Accept: application/json' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Authorization: Basic YWRtaW5AbG9jYWw6Vk13YXJlMTIzIQ== ' -k

  • replace the highlighted
  • After the command to DELETE is run, you can refresh the page to see the changes. 

Hope this helps 😀
