Deleting Content Types

Existing Content Type can be deleted either by sending a properly formatted DELETE request to the /api/v1/internal/contenttype/{name} endpoint or through the Content Modeler tool provided with the platform.

Note

You will need to use your Application Read and write API KEY to perform this action. Read more about API keys and scoped API keys.

Deleting Content Types via API

Deleting Content Type is simply a DELETE call without a payload.

You can only delete Content Types that do not have any Content Objects or are not assigned to the scoped API key.

Example

curl --location --request DELETE "https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts" \
--header 'accept: */*' \
--header 'X-AUTH-TOKEN: YOUR_API_KEY'
var client = new RestClient("https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts");
var request = new RestRequest(Method.DELETE);
request.AddHeader("X-AUTH-TOKEN", "YOUR_API_KEY");
IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);
package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "net/http"
    "io/ioutil"
)

func main() {

    url := "https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts"

    req, _ := http.NewRequest("DELETE", url, nil)

    req.Header.Add("X-AUTH-TOKEN", "YOUR_API_KEY")

    res, _ := http.DefaultClient.Do(req)

    defer res.Body.Close()
    body, _ := ioutil.ReadAll(res.Body)

    fmt.Println(res)
    fmt.Println(string(body))

}
OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient();

Request request = new Request.Builder()
    .url("https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts")
    .delete(null)
    .addHeader("X-AUTH-TOKEN", "YOUR_API_KEY")
    .build();

Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();
HttpResponse<String> response = Unirest.delete("https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts")
    .header("X-AUTH-TOKEN", "YOUR_API_KEY")
    .asString();
const request = require('request');

const options = {
    method: 'DELETE',
    url: 'https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts',
    headers: {'X-AUTH-TOKEN': 'YOUR_API_KEY'},
};

request(options, function (error, response, body) {
    if (error) throw new Error(error);

    console.log(body);
});
<?php

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, [
    CURLOPT_URL => "https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype/blogposts",

$response = curl_exec($curl);
$err = curl_error($curl);

curl_close($curl);

if ($err) {
    echo "cURL Error #:" . $err;
} else {
    echo $response;
