Delete a Data Source

Delete a Data Source

Bing

Use the following URL to delete a data source. To delete a data source, a delete data source job is created.

You can also use the Bing Maps Account Center to delete a data source. For more information, see Creating and Managing Data Sources.

A job is created when you delete a data source. Before using this API, review the job limits in Geocode and Data Source Limits.

To get a list of all the data source and geocode jobs submitted in the last 15 days, see Get Job List.

Supported HTTP Methods

DELETE

URL Template

Delete a data source.

The key parameter in this URL must be set to the data source master key.

You can get the data source base component (http://spatial.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/data/accessId/dataSourceName), by using the Get Data Source Information API and requesting information about all the data sources associated with the Bing Maps account that manages the data source.

The URL uses the HTTP DELETE method so you cannot delete a datasource by typing the URL directly in the address bar of a browser. See the Example section for more information.

http://spatial.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/data/accessId/dataSourceName?key=masterKey

After you initiate a job to delete a data source, you must wait until the delete job is completed before creating a new data source with the same name.
