We provide two ways to remove your packages/files/assets from your repositories:
- Delete via the API using tools/integrations (such as the Cloudsmith CLI),
- Delete directly via the Website UI.
To delete a package using the Cloudsmith CLI, you first need to identify the package you wish to delete. See Package Identification for instructions to do this.
Once you have identified the package, you use the
cloudsmith delete command to delete it:
cloudsmith delete OWNER/REPO/UNIQUE_ID
cloudsmith delete demo/examples-repo/G0rDBWcVBMEm
In this example, we identified that the package we want to delete has the Unique ID "G0rDBWcVBMEm" and we are deleting it from the "my-example-repo" repository:
You can delete a package via the Website UI:
- Via the repository packages list
- Via the package detail page
To delete a package via the repository packages list, click the orange "Tool" button to the right of the package name, then click "Delete":
To delete a package via the package detail page, click the red "Delete" button to the right of the package name:
After clicking a "Delete" button, you will then be presented with a confirmation form. Click "Delete" again to confirm deletion of the package:
You will then get an on-screen message confirming that the package has been scheduled for deletion.
To delete more than one package from a repository, use the checkboxes beside the package names and then click the red "delete package" button that appears at the top of the package list:
If you have selected a checkbox beside a package name, then package operations under the orange 'tool' button will be disabled as you are now in bulk operation mode.
