Deletes a key.

fauna delete-key KEYNAME

Description

The delete-key command deletes a key.

If you don’t pass any options at the command line, Fauna uses the default options specified in the fauna-shell configuration file.

Arguments

Argument Description

KEYNAME

The name of the key to delete.

Options

Option Description

--domain=<domain>

Optional - The Fauna server domain, that is, the hostname where Fauna is running. Defaults to db.fauna.com.

--endpoint=<endpoint>

Optional - The name of the endpoint to use for the command.

--port=<port>

Optional - The connection port. Defaults to 8443.

--scheme=<scheme>

Optional - The connection scheme. Must be one of https or http. Defaults to https.

--secret=<secret>

Optional - The secret to use. A secret authenticates your connection to Fauna, and connects you to a specific database.

Example

For this example, we already have 4 keys:

fauna list-keys
listing keys
Key ID               Database             Role
259718958404338186   app1                 server
259719743570706945   app1                 client
265528117038154259   my-test-db           admin
265437820880945683   my_test_db           admin

Now, delete the first key in the list:

fauna delete-key 259718958404338186
deleting key 259718958404338186
key 259718958404338186 deleted

When you list the keys again, you see that the key you deleted is now gone:

fauna list-keys
listing keys
Key ID               Database             Role
259719743570706945   app1                 client
265528117038154259   my-test-db           admin
265437820880945683   my_test_db           admin
