If you wish to remove a specific item from the relationship, then you need to add criteria to search for an instance of the object. If you are not concerned about what is removed, then you can remove any item from the relationship.
Deleting an instance of an object (actually marked as pending delete in the console) removes any relationships it has with other objects.
Yes I am concerned:
Use the Delete Relationship Processing Option and the Reference Instance Object Processing Option so you can add criteria for finding a specific instance of the object. In this case the relationship may be one to many or you may only wish to remove the relationship when it meets specific criteria.
You only wish to remove the assignment from a hardware asset if the assignment is to Angelica Hudson. The criteria for the second object would be Angelica Hudson.
No I am not concerned:
Use the Delete Relationship Processing Option and the Reference Object Object Processing Option because you do not need to select any search criteria. Reference Object removes all instances of objects from the relationship, even if it is a one to many relationship.
You wish to remove an assignment from a hardware asset and it does not matter who the assignment is to. You wish to remove all cost events from a hardware asset.
