Delete Rollup Job APIedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.


The Delete Rollup Job API allows you to delete a job by ID.

DeleteRollupJobRequest request = new DeleteRollupJobRequest(id); 

The ID of the job to delete.


The returned DeleteRollupJobResponse indicates if the delete command was received.


Whether or not the delete job request was received.

Synchronous executionedit

When executing a DeleteRollupJobRequest in the following manner, the client waits for the DeleteRollupJobResponse to be returned before continuing with code execution:

AcknowledgedResponse response = client.rollup().deleteRollupJob(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT);

Synchronous calls may throw an IOException in case of either failing to parse the REST response in the high-level REST client, the request times out or similar cases where there is no response coming back from the server.

In cases where the server returns a 4xx or 5xx error code, the high-level client tries to parse the response body error details instead and then throws a generic ElasticsearchException and adds the original ResponseException as a suppressed exception to it.

Asynchronous executionedit

Executing a DeleteRollupJobRequest can also be done in an asynchronous fashion so that the client can return directly. Users need to specify how the response or potential failures will be handled by passing the request and a listener to the asynchronous rollup-delete-job method:

client.rollup().deleteRollupJobAsync(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT, listener); 

The DeleteRollupJobRequest to execute and the ActionListener to use when the execution completes

The asynchronous method does not block and returns immediately. Once it is completed the ActionListener is called back using the onResponse method if the execution successfully completed or using the onFailure method if it failed. Failure scenarios and expected exceptions are the same as in the synchronous execution case.

A typical listener for rollup-delete-job looks like:

ActionListener<AcknowledgedResponse> listener = new ActionListener<AcknowledgedResponse>() {
    public void onResponse(AcknowledgedResponse response) {
        boolean acknowledged = response.isAcknowledged(); 

    public void onFailure(Exception e) {

Called when the execution is successfully completed.

Called when the whole DeleteRollupJobRequest fails.
