temporal.documentDelete( $temporal-collection as String, $uri as String ) as null
This function deletes the temporal document identified by the given URI. Note that temporal documents are not actually deleted, but are rather "logically deleted" and remain in the database with system end times set to the time of the deletion.
A TEMPORAL-DOCNOTFOUND exception is thrown if the document does not exist in the named collection.
|$temporal-collection||The collection that contains the temnporal document to be deleted.|
|$uri||The URI of the temporal document to be deleted.|
declareUpdate(); var temporal = require("/MarkLogic/temporal.xqy"); temporal.documentDelete("temporalCollection", "doc.xml") // Deletes the "doc.xml" document from the temporalCollection.
