delete-key

Delete a key.

Syntax

fauna delete-key KEYNAME [OPTIONS]

Description

The delete-key command deletes a key.

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

Arguments

Argument Description

KEYNAME

The name of the key to delete.

Options

Option Description

--domain=<domain>

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

--endpoint=<name>

Optional name of the endpoint to use for the command.

--port=<number>

Optional connection port. Defaults to 8443.

--scheme=<scheme>

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

--secret=<secret>

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

--timeout=<integer>

Optional connection timeout, an integer number of milliseconds. When the interval 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

There are already four keys for this example:

$ 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
