The delete API method

This method was introduced in CloudShark 1.4 and refers to version 1.0 of the API


The delete API call allows a capture file to be removed from a CloudShark system.


POST /api/v1/<token>/delete/<cid>

The delete call uses an http or https POST to delete the specified capture file from the CloudShark system.


curl -X POST

The method returns a JSON object indicating the status of the delete operation.

{"status":200,"message":"Capture deleted successfully.","id":"cd17d8b73fea"}


The delete call will only succeed if the owner of the API token has sufficient permission to actually delete the file.
