DELETE /manage/v2/tasks/{id|name}


This resource address deletes the named task from the named group.

URL Parameters
group-id The id or name of the group to which the task belongs. The group must be specified by this parameter or by the group-name property in the request payload. If it is specified in both places, the values must be the same.
format The format of the posted data. Can be either html, json, or xml (default). This parameter is not meaningful with view=edit. This value overrides the Accept header if both are present.
Request Headers
accept The expected MIME type of the response. If the format parameter is present, it takes precedence over the Accept header.


Upon successful completion, MarkLogic Server returns status code 204 (No Content). If the task does not exist, a status code of 400 (Bad Request) is returned. A status code of 401 (Unauthorized) is returned if the user does not have the necessary privileges.
