Deleting XDCR replications

Deleting XDCR replications

To delete an XDCR replication, use the DELETE /controller/cancelXDCR HTTP method and URI.


When a replication is deleted, it stops replication from the source to the destination. If the replication is re-created the between the same source and destination clusters and buckets, XDCR resumes replication.

HTTP method and URI

DELETE /controller/cancelXDCR/[UUID]/[local-bucket-name]/[remote-bucket-name]


A URL-encoded endpoint is used which contains the unique document ID that references the replication. The replication can also be deleted via the web console.

Curl request example:

curl -u admin:password1  \
