Deleting a usage report

  1. Authenticate to the cloud platform via the Python shell.

    The following variables should be available now:

    >>> base_url  # the base URL of the API
    >>> auth  # the 'Authorization' header value with the access token
    {'Authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImtpZCI6ImMwMD...'}
    >>> tenant_id  # the UUID of the tenant to which the token provides access
  2. Assign the report_id variable the UUID of a report created via the API or a report found in tenant reports:

    >>> report_id = created_report_id
    >>> report_id
  3. Fetch the revision number of the report as described in the chapters above. The following variable should be available now:

    >>> version
  4. Define a variable named params, and then assign the version query string parameter to this variable:

    >>> params = {
    ...     'version': version
    ... }


    Value type






    Revision number.

  5. Send a DELETE request to the /reports/{report_id} endpoint:

    >>> response = requests.delete(f'{base_url}/reports/{report_id}', headers=auth, params=params)
  6. Check the status code of the response:

    >>> response.status_code

    Status code 204 means that the report has been deleted.

    A different status code means that an error has occurred. For the details, refer to “Status and error codes”.
