You must have manage or manage_rollup cluster privileges to use this API. For more information, see Security privileges.

Examplesedit

If we have a rollup job named sensor, it can be deleted with:

DELETE _xpack/rollup/job/sensor

Which will return the response:

{
  "acknowledged": true
}

If however we try to delete a job which doesn’t exist:

DELETE _xpack/rollup/job/does_not_exist

A 404 resource_not_found exception will be thrown:

{
    "error" : {
        "root_cause" : [
            {
                "type" : "resource_not_found_exception",
                "reason" : "the task with id does_not_exist doesn't exist",
                "stack_trace": ...
            }
        ],
        "type" : "resource_not_found_exception",
        "reason" : "the task with id does_not_exist doesn't exist",
        "stack_trace": ...
    },
    "status": 404
}
