Deletes all reference metadata reports which match the query URL, the path parameters following the /metadata/ are used to create a filter on the Metadata Reports. The path uses the same syntax as the GET parameters, it is therefore possible to delete by specific report identifiers, by metadataflow, or by structure query.

Examples

Delete specific report

https://example.registry.com/sdmx/v2/metadata/metadataset/MT/REPORT1/1.0

Delete all versions of report

https://example.registry.com/sdmx/v2/metadata/metadataset/MT/REPORT1/*

Delete all reports against Metadataflow

https://example.registry.com/sdmx/v2/metadata/metadataflow/MT/MDF1/1.0

Delete all reports against Metadataflow for a specific Metadata Provider

https://example.registry.com/sdmx/v2/metadata/metadataflow/MT/MDF1/1.0/PROVIDER1

Delete all reports against all BIS Codelists
