Delete Indexer (Azure Search Service REST API)

The Delete Indexer operation removes an indexer from your Azure Search service.

DELETE https://[service name][indexer name]?api-version=[api-version]  
    api-key: [admin key]  

When an indexer is deleted, the indexer executions in progress at that time will run to completion, but no further executions will be scheduled. Attempts to use a non-existent indexer will result in HTTP status code 404 Not Found.

The api-version is required. The current version is 2019-05-06. See API versions in Azure Search for details.

The api-key must be an admin key (as opposed to a query key). Refer to the authentication section in Azure Search Service REST to learn more about keys. Create an Azure Search service in the portal explains how to get the service URL and key properties used in the request.


Status Code: 204 No Content is returned for a successful response.
