You can delete one or more existing records from a table.

URL

Use a URL in the following form to invoke the API.

POST https://api.appsheet.com/api/v2/apps/{appId}/tables/{tableName}/Action where

  • {appId} specifies the GUID of the AppSheet application. You can obtain the {appId} from the Manage > Integrations > IN pane.
  • {tableName} specifies the name of the table.

Body

The HTTP Body contains:

  1. The Action name “Delete”.
  2. Optional properties such as Locale, Location, and Timezone.
    The Locale is used when validating Date, Time, DateTime, Decimal, Percent, and Price data values. For example, when Locale is "en-US", date values must be entered in MM/DD/YYYY format. When Locale is "en-GB", date values must be entered in DD/MM/YYYY format.
  3. One, or more, Row values to be deleted. Each individual Row value must include the key field values of the record to be deleted. In the following example, the key fields of the record are "FirstName" and "LastName".

    When you wish to delete one or more rows, it is more efficient to delete all of the rows in a single API call than to delete each row in a separate API call. Using a single API call is significantly more efficient because we make few calls to the data provider.
