Delete Objectedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release.

The delete saved object API permanently removes a Kibana saved object. Once a saved object has been deleted, it cannot be recovered.

Note: You cannot access this endpoint via the Console in Kibana.
