Every object is saved in Guru so that a previous version can be easily recovered with the "Make Last Revision of" action. Similarly, "obsolete" objects are never seen by Guru Applications, they are effectively deleted. When an object is obsoleted, the last revision is saved and all previous revisions are immediately discarded from the local Guru. When the "obsolete" object is backed up to the Guru Server, all the previous versions are then discarded. Once the server gets the "obsolete" version of the object, it will no longer be seen by any client connected to that Guru server. When an object is loaded in a "open" dialog, for example, the obsoleted object is then sent to the client and the local Guru immediately removes all previous versions and hides the object from view. Only users with Engineer or Maintenance role can access the Apps menu to launch Guru Explorer or Test Objects Browser in Cassini.

Note: Objects can also be obsoleted via the Test Objects Browser window in Cassini application. Using Test Objects Browser in Cassini App https://roos.com/docs/RBEH-AYETZ5
