delete( )

A function that responds to requests made with the HTTP DELETE method.

The HTTP DELETE method is usually called by consumers to delete an existing resource. If defined in this way and the resource is deleted, the function should respond with a 200 (OK) status code.

Respond to the request by returning a WixHttpFunctionResponse object you create using one of the response(), ok(), created(), notFound(), serverError(), badRequest(), or forbidden() functions.

The delete() function is not a function that you call from your code. You define the function in a file named http-functions.js in your site's Backend section. The function is called when your users make HTTP requests using the associated URLs as described below.

All DELETE requests with the following URL will be routed to this function:

  • The HTTP DELETE request can't contain a body and can't contain the header "Content-Type": "application/json". If the request breaks this syntax and includes either of these, the function returns a 400 (Bad Request) status code.
  • You must publish your site at least once before using both the testing and production endpoints. When you make changes to production endpoints you must publish your site for them to take effect. Testing endpoints will use the latest code in the editor.
