Kong Community Edition (KongCE) - delete a Service using curl

The curl DELETE command can be used to delete a service.


On the Kong server

If Kong is running on docker, refer to Kong - Docker container command line for the steps on how to issue commands in the Kong Docker container. Assuming you are using the default kong.conf file, the Kong Admin API will listen on port 8001.

admin_listen = 127.0.0.1:8001

 

If issuing this command on the Kong server, this command will delete "foo-service".

curl -X DELETE "http://localhost:8001/services/foo-service"

 

Or, you can do the same with the service ID.

curl -X DELETE "http://localhost:8001/services/8b2be1ef-c633-426d-bfbf-7e5e000000ad"

 


From a remote server

If issuing this command from a remote server, this command will delete "foo-service".

curl -X DELETE "http://hostname:8000/admin-api/services/foo-service"

 

Or, you can do the same with the service ID.

curl -X DELETE "http://hostname:8000/admin-api/services/8b2be1ef-c633-426d-bfbf-7e5e000000ad"

 


Validation

Regardless if the service was or was not successfully deleted, there will be no output. The curl GET command can be used to ensure the service no longer exists.
