The Delete Assets Data Operation

Zack Cohen Zack Cohen

Overview

The Delete Asset Data Operation allows for removing any Asset Data Type. Assets will eventually expire, but to delete them before their expiration, use Delete Asset Data Operation.

Use Cases

  • Remove a sensitive file record as soon as it is remitted.
  • The user chooses to delete a selected record.
  • Remove a large file after it has been uploaded to an external resource.

Data Operation Properties

Asset to Delete

This is an array of Asset Data Type objects to be removed.

Results

If the asset is successfully removed, the result will be an empty object. If there is an issue in deleting an object, the error will be returned.

The operation will attempt to delete individual files, so even if one has already been removed, the others will still be removed.
