DeleteJobExecution

Deletes a job execution.

Request Syntax

DELETE /things/thingName/jobs/jobId/executionNumber/executionNumber?force=force HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request requires the following URI parameters.

executionNumber

The ID of the job execution to be deleted. The executionNumber refers to the execution of a particular job on a particular device.

Note that once a job execution is deleted, the executionNumber may be reused by IoT, so be sure you get and use the correct value here.

force

(Optional) When true, you can delete a job execution which is "IN_PROGRESS". Otherwise, you can only delete a job execution which is in a terminal state ("SUCCEEDED", "FAILED", "REJECTED", "REMOVED" or "CANCELED") or an exception will occur. The default is false.

Note

Deleting a job execution which is "IN_PROGRESS", will cause the device to be unable to access job information or update the job execution status. Use caution and ensure that the device is able to recover to a valid state.

The ID of the job whose execution on a particular device will be deleted.
