To delete data, TagoIO uses the same query string used to get data, for more details about each query, see here.

Below, we will show some examples of DELETING data using query string.

Examples:

Deleting the last 99 items from the variable temperature.
https://api.tago.io/data?variable=temperature&qty=99

Tip: Make sure your request is DELETE and not POST when trying to delete items. Note that posting data is relatively instantaneous while deleting data can take between 10 and 30 seconds to complete.

Deleting the last item from the variable temperature. https://api.tago.io/data?variable=temperature&query=last_item

Deleting the last value from the variable temperature (requires the 'value' attribute on the variable object).
https://api.tago.io/data?variable=temperature&query=last_value

Deleting the last location from the variable temperature (requires 'location' attribute on the variable object).
https://api.tago.io/data?variable=temperature&query=last_location

Deleting by period.

Deleting the last value from an array of variables.
https://api.tago.io/data?variable[]=temperature&variable[]=pressure&query=last_value


When executing requests to TagoIO, you will have a limit on the number of requests that can be made during a certain time period. Read more about our Rate Limits.
