Dropping a Scope
Scopes can be dropped, by means of the REST API.
Scopes are dropped by means of the
DELETE /pools/default/buckets/<bucket_name>/scopes/<scope_name> HTTP method and URI.
The curl syntax is as follows:
curl -X DELETE -v -u [admin]:[password] http://<hostname-or-ip>:8091/pools/default/buckets/\ <bucket_name>/scopes/<scope_name>
<bucket-name> path-parameter specifies the bucket whose scope is to be dropped.
<scope-name> path-parameter specifies the scope that is to be dropped.
Failure to authenticate gives
A malformed URI fails with
404 Object Not Found.
If the scope-name is improperly specified, a notification such as
"name":"Length must be in range from 1 to 30" or
"name":"Can only contain characters A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and the following symbols _ - %" is displayed.
See Scopes and Collections, for an account of naming conventions.
Curl request example:
curl -X DELETE -v -u Administrator:password \ http://10.143.210.101:8091/pools/default/buckets/\ testBucket/scopes/my_scope
If successful, the call returns a UID. For example:
