DELETE: Delete a collection

A collection is deleted with a DELETE operation. Use a query to delete multiple instances.

  • 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.

  • On success, only status code 200 (OK) is returned.

DELETE .../api/shared_spaces/<shared_space_id>/workspaces/<workspace_id>/defects

Caution: It is possible to delete all of the instances in a collection if no query is specified. For example, the line above will successfully 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, deletion of a collection is not supported.

Example: DELETE request

This example deletes all defects.

DELETE .../api/shared_spaces/<shared_space_id>/workspaces/<workspace_id>/defects/

*** Response ***
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
