Delete an index

Problem

You need to delete an index from the current database.

Solution

Use the Delete function:

client.query(
  q.Delete(q.Index('all_of_the_people'))
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
{
  ref: Index("all_of_the_people"),
  ts: 1631909688850000,
  active: true,
  serialized: true,
  name: 'all_of_the_people',
  source: Collection("People"),
  values: [
    { field: [ 'data', 'first' ] },
    { field: [ 'data', 'last' ] },
    { field: [ 'ref' ] }
  ],
  partitions: 8,
  data: { team: 'Wizards' }
}
result = client.query(
  q.delete(q.index("all_of_the_people"))
)
print(result)

result, err := client.Query(
	f.Delete(f.Index("all_of_the_people")))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
