Delete roleedit

This API is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Although the underlying mechanism of enforcing role-based access control is stable, the APIs for managing the roles are currently experimental.


To use this API, you must have at least the manage_security cluster privilege.


To delete a role, submit a DELETE request to the /api/security/role/<rolename> endpoint:

DELETE /api/security/role/my_admin_role


If the role is successfully deleted, the response code is 204; otherwise, the response code is 404.
