How do I remove an archived release from XL Release?


Kenny Lim -


I cannot seem to find a way to remove an archived release from XL Release. Doing the following yields me an error:

DELETE http://myXLRelease:5516/api/v1/releases/archived/Applications/ReleaseXXXXXXX


Repository entity [archived/Applications/ReleaseXXXXXXX] not found


XL Release (5.0.x, 6.0.x, 6.1.x)


Currently there is no supported way to delete an archived release.

However, you can use this internal API call to delete an archived release:

curl -u USER:PASS -X DELETE -H "content-type:application/json" "http://IP:PORT/fixtures/RELEASE_ID".

The RELEASE_ID should not be Applications/ReleaseXXXXXXX but only ReleaseXXXXXXX and the credentials used must have administrative privileges in XL Release.
