--xdcr-cluster-name flags, as follows:
couchbase-cli xdcr-setup -c 10.142.180.101 \ -u Administrator \ -p password \ --delete \ --xdcr-cluster-name 10.142.180.102
If successful, this returns the following:
SUCCESS: Cluster reference deleted
The reference has been deleted.
Delete an XDCR Reference with the REST API
From the starting-point defined above, in Examples on This Page, use the REST API to delete an XDCR reference as follows:
curl -X DELETE -u Administrator:password \ http://10.142.180.101:8091/pools/default/remoteClusters/10.142.180.102
If successful, this returns
