Delete Developer

Resource Summary


Content Type





Delete Developer

Deletes a developer from an organization. All apps and API keys associated with the developer are also removed from the organization. All times in the response are UNIX times.


To avoid permanently deleting developers and their artifacts, consider deactivating developers instead. See Set Developer Status.

CPS: With Core Persistence Services, deletion of the developer and associated artifacts happens asynchronously. The developer is deleted immediately, but the resources associated with that developer, such as apps, may take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to be automatically deleted.


Apigee recommends using the developer email in the API call. Developer ID is generated internally and is not guaranteed to stay the same over time. For example, Apigee could change the format or length of this variable.

Resource URL /organizations/{org_name}/developers/{developer_email_or_id}
