Delete Item

Description

The Delete Item operation (POST only) removes both the item and its link from the user's folder by default. This operation is available to the user and to the administrator of the organization to which the user belongs.

Note:

The deleteItem operation has changed at 10.6.1 so that when a service item that references a published service on a federated server is deleted, the corresponding service is also deleted from the server. If the item represents a capability for a service, like WMS, then the capability will be removed from its parent map service.
