Delete a workflow

When you no longer need a workflow template, you can delete it by calling the Delete Workflow API.

Note that deleting a workflow only deletes the stored template but does not deprovision its resources.

Path and HTTP methods

DELETE /_plugins/_flow_framework/workflow/<workflow_id>

Path parameters

The following table lists the available path parameters.

Parameter Data type Description
workflow_id String The ID of the workflow to be retrieved. Required.

Example request

DELETE /_plugins/_flow_framework/workflow/8xL8bowB8y25Tqfenm50

Example response
