delete-key

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.
Since the introduction of Region Groups, three cloud domains are available. Use the correct domain for your database’s Region Group.
Classic (US and EU): db.fauna.com
United States (US): db.us.fauna.com
Europe (EU): db.eu.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.

--timeout=<timeout>

Optional - The connection timeout, an integer number of milliseconds. When the specified period has elapsed, fauna-shell stops waiting for a response and displays an error.

The default is zero, which means that fauna-shell waits until a response is received.

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
