Delete Stored Script APIedit

Delete Stored Script Requestedit

A DeleteStoredScriptRequest requires an id:

DeleteStoredScriptRequest deleteRequest = new DeleteStoredScriptRequest("calculate-score"); 

The id of the script

Optional argumentsedit

The following arguments can optionally be provided:


Timeout to wait for the all the nodes to acknowledge the stored script is deleted as a TimeValue

Timeout to wait for the all the nodes to acknowledge the stored script is deleted as a String


Timeout to connect to the master node as a TimeValue

Timeout to connect to the master node as a String

Synchronous Executionedit

AcknowledgedResponse deleteResponse = client.deleteScript(deleteRequest, RequestOptions.DEFAULT);

Asynchronous Executionedit

The asynchronous execution of a delete stored script request requires both the DeleteStoredScriptRequest instance and an ActionListener instance to be passed to the asynchronous method:

client.deleteScriptAsync(deleteRequest, RequestOptions.DEFAULT, listener); 

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

Action Listeneredit

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.

A typical listener for AcknowledgedResponse looks like:

ActionListener<AcknowledgedResponse> listener =
    new ActionListener<AcknowledgedResponse>() {
        public void onResponse(AcknowledgedResponse response) {

        public void onFailure(Exception e) {

Called when the execution is successfully completed. The response is provided as an argument

Called in case of failure. The raised exception is provided as an argument

Delete Stored Script Responseedit

The returned AcknowledgedResponse allows to retrieve information about the executed operation as follows:

boolean acknowledged = deleteResponse.isAcknowledged();

Indicates whether all of the nodes have acknowledged the request
