Delete rulesets

You can use the API to delete all the versions of a ruleset or delete a specific version of a ruleset.

Delete ruleset

Deletes all the versions of an existing ruleset at the account or zone level.

Use one of the following API endpoints:

OperationMethod + Endpoint
Delete account rulesetDELETE /accounts/{account-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}
Delete zone rulesetDELETE /zones/{zone-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}

If the delete operation succeeds, the API method call returns a 204 No Content HTTP status code.

Example

The following example request deletes an existing ruleset.

Request
curl -X DELETE \
-H "X-Auth-Email: user@example.com" \
-H "X-Auth-Key: REDACTED" \
"https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/accounts/{account-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}"

Delete ruleset version

Deletes a specific version of a ruleset.

Use one of the following API endpoints:

OperationMethod + Endpoint
Delete a version of an account rulesetDELETE /accounts/{account-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}/versions/{version-number}
Delete a version of a zone rulesetDELETE /zones/{zone-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}/versions/{version-number}

If the delete operation succeeds, the method call returns a 204 No Content HTTP status code.

Later updates to the ruleset will not reuse the version number of a deleted ruleset version.

Example

The following example request deletes a version of an existing ruleset.

Request
curl -X DELETE \
-H "X-Auth-Email: user@example.com" \
-H "X-Auth-Key: REDACTED" \
"https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/accounts/{account-id}/rulesets/{ruleset-id}/versions/{version-number}"
