Deleting XDCR Replications

Deleting XDCR Replications

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

Description

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/[url_encoded_replication_id]

Replication ID is provided in the form of [UUID]/[local-bucket-name]/[remote-bucket-name]. It needs to be URL-encoded before it can be used in the delete replication URL.

Example

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 Administrator:password1  \
  http://10.4.2.4:8091/controller/cancelXDCR/ \
