Is there a way to unpublish items directly from the recycle bin rather than having to restore them and then unpublish them?

Thanks in advance

  • You can query items in the recycle bin and then delete the corresponding items from the publishing target. Nov 11, 2022 at 11:08

No that is not possible to execute any action like that from recycle bin directly.

What you could think of is removing items from the web database manually, but that can cause issues like indexes being out of sync.

Proper way would be to restore the item and unpublish it.

Long time ago I wrote a command for Sitecore backend which allows to unpublish and delete item with one click. Maybe something like that would help for the future?
