DELETE method usage and considerations

The DELETE method deletes an instance of a resource.

  • Not all resources support the DELETE method. See the ArubaOS-CX REST API Reference for the methods supported by each resource. The REST API must be in read-write mode to see all the DELETE methods supported.

  • The URI must specify a specific resource instance. The URI must not specify a collection.

  • Child subcollections and resources are deleted when you delete the parent resource. For example, if you delete an ACL, its ACL entries are deleted automatically.

  • DELETE requests do not contain a request body.

  • DELETE requests do not return a response body.
