Delete Services

Description

This operation deletes the desired services on all reachable server machines in the cluster. This operation requires three properties: folder name, service name, and service type. When a service is deleted, the service is stopped, and all resources and configurations associated with the service are deleted.

Note:

Clusters have been deprecated. The use of clusters for new deployments is strongly discouraged and existing deployments are advised to migrate away from use of clusters as part of ongoing maintenance and upgrades.
