After that click on the plugin (in example mindconnectlib)

 

Click on the Settings in the right corner and click on off-board.

This is for deleting agent but what about assets. When I select Asset I get something which is different from what you have shown in image.

That is an asset to which the data was mapped via mindconnect iot extension. There is nothing to offboard in AssetManager in this case, if you want the data to stop coming to your tenant you can offboard the corresponding device in MindConnect IOT Extension.

Sorry for the calling it off-board. I simply want to delete my asset from Asset Manager but it always asks me to off-board agent first but I don't have nay agent for that asset.

Did you tried to delete asset in asset manager with "Delete asset" menu?

Mindsphere Connectivity requirement is "onboarded agent cannot be deleted". 

Hence you would need to "offboard" an agent before deleting.

You could offboard an agent by using  Agent Management Service https://developer.mindsphere.io/apis/connectivity-agentmanagement/api-agentmanagement-api-swagger.ht...

 

POST /api/agentmanagement/v3/agents/{{agentid}}/boarding/offboard

 

After offboard, you can delete agent-asset. (You can get agent id by using agent management API or (non-standard and quick way Smiley Happy ), simply open agent-asset in asset manager, in the URL of browser window , agent id is value after "selected"

 

Alternatively, use Asset Manager UI to edit boarding configuration
