Deleting a Cloudera Data Engineering resource using the API

A resource in Cloudera Data Engineering (CDE) is a named collection of files referenced by a job. The files can include application code, configuration files, and even Python virtual environment specifications (requirements.txt). You can delete a resource using the CDE API.

As with all API calls, make sure you have a valid access token. For instructions, see Getting a Cloudera Data Engineering API access token.

  1. Make sure that you no longer need the resource before deleting it.
  2. Delete the resource by sending a DELETE request to the /resources/<resourceName> endpoint.
    For example, to delete a resource named example-job-files:
    curl <jobs_api_url>/example-job-files \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer ${CDE_TOKEN}" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
