  1. Open a transaction.

    For details, see Open a transaction.

  2. DELETE the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/plugins/aa/<ID-of-the-plugin-to-delete> endpoint. For details, see Delete an object. If the DELETE request is successful, the response includes only the meta object, for example:

    {
        "meta": {
            "href": "/api/configuration/plugins/aa/b080b1ba546232548bb1a9",
            "parent": "/api/configuration/plugins/aa"
        }
    }
  3. Commit your changes.

    For details, see Commit a transaction.

The following table lists the typical status and error codes for this request. For a complete list of error codes, see Application level error codes.

Code Description Notes
200 The plugin has been successfully deleted
400 SemanticError The plugin cannot be deleted, because there is reference to it in the configuration (For example, AA plugin delete fails because there is an AA Plugin Configuration for it).
401 Unauthenticated The requested resource cannot be retrieved because the client is not authenticated and the resource requires authorization to access it. The details section contains the path that was attempted to be accessed, but could not be retrieved.
