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.
Delete via Cloudsmith CLI
Identify a Package
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.
Delete a Package
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:
Delete via Website UI
You can delete a package via the Website UI:
- Via the repository packages list
- Via the package detail page
Delete via Repository Packages List
To delete a package via the repository packages list, click the orange "Tool" button to the right of the package name, then click "Delete":
Delete via the Package Detail page
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.
Bulk Package Delete
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.
