Delete a bucket

Deleting a bucket and then recreating it is sometimes faster than deleting all objects in an existing bucket.

To delete a bucket using the Couchbase Web Console:

  1. Go to the Data Buckets tab and click the blue triangle next to the bucket name.

    bucket delete select
  2. Click on the Edit button.

    bucket delete edit
  3. The standard bucket editing screen will appear and in the lower left corner (you may have to scroll down) there is the Delete button in red.

    Click on it and confirm the deletion.

You can also use the CLI command bucket-delete or REST API command rest-bucket-delete.
