DELETE: Delete a collection
This topic provides instructions for using the DELETE operation to delete multiple entities.
When performing the DELETE operation, consider the following points:
- A request for a delete on a collection deletes the entire collection.
- Deleting can be done using filtering.
- Supports partial success, similar to POST and PUT.
- You can delete up to 5,000 entities through a single request.
On success, only status code 200 (OK) is returned.
Caution: It is possible to delete all of the instances in a collection if no query is specified. For example, the following line will delete all defects in the project:
If your site has been configured to be compliant with the GDPR 'Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)' regulation, the deletion of a collection is not supported.
This example deletes all defects.
