The following section contains information about removing applications within GSS.

When deleting an application from DNS that has been configured in GSS, you must first remove the GSS configuration before deleting the Host or Alias record in Address Manager. This process removes the application from GSS and deletes the application from the RPZ zones.

To remove a GSS application:
  1. In the left navigation, click DNSTrafficSteering > Configure Traffic Steering.
  2. Select the GSS application that you would like to delete.
  3. Delete all configured answers except for the Fallback IP addresses. For more information, refer to Managing existing answers.
  4. Select the name of the GSS application and click Clean Up.
  5. Close the browser tab to ensure that no new GSS configuration is created for the application.

Once the application has been removed from GSS, GSS no longer makes updates. If the GSS health-check server is processing updates to answers when the Clean Up runs, it might update GSS responses in RPZ zones that the Clean Up action had already removed, causing GSS to continue affecting queries for the deleted application. This can be prevented by removing the answers first before proceeding with the Clean Up action.
