Delete Management Certificate
Updated: June 7, 2012
The Delete Management Certificate operation deletes a certificate from the list of management certificates. Management certificates, which are also known as subscription certificates, authenticate clients attempting to connect to resources associated with your Windows Azure subscription.
The Remove Management Certificate request may be specified as follows. Replace
<subscription-id> with your subscription ID and
<thumbprint> with the thumbprint value of the certificate to delete:
|Method||Request URI||HTTP Version|
The following table describes required and optional request headers.
Required. Specifies the version of the operation to use for this request. This header should be set to 2012-03-01 or a later version. For more information about versioning headers, see Service Management Versioning.
The response includes an HTTP status code and a set of response headers.
The operation will return status code 200 (OK) if it is successful. If the certificate does not exist, the operation will return status code 404 (NotFound).
For information about status codes, see Service Management Status and Error Codes.
The response for this operation includes the following headers. The response may also include additional standard HTTP headers. All standard headers comply with the HTTP/1.1 protocol specification.
A value that uniquely identifies a request made against the Management service. For an asynchronous operation, you can call Get Operation Status with the value of this header to determine whether the operation is complete, has failed, or is still in progress. See Tracking Asynchronous Service Management Requests for more information.
Any management certificate associated with the subscription specified by <subscription-id> can be used to authenticate this operation. For additional details, see Authenticating Service Management Requests.
Management certificates, also known as subscription certificates, are associated with a subscription rather than a service and are used to authenticate clients attempting to access resources in your Windows Azure Subscription. For more information on certificates, see Overview of Certificates in Windows Azure.
If you use Remove Management Certificate to remove the last management certificate associated with your subscription, you must use the management portal to access that subscription’s settings and services.
