To use this API, you must have either:

  • the manage_security cluster privilege (or a greater privilege such as all); or
  • the "Manage Application Privileges" global privilege for the application being referenced in the request


The following example deletes the read application privilege from the myapp application:

DELETE /_security/privilege/myapp/read

If the role is successfully deleted, the request returns {"found": true}. Otherwise, found is set to false.

  "myapp": {
    "read": {
      "found" : true
