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.


Note the following:

  • With Apigee Edge for Public Cloud, 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 that you use the developer's email address when calling this API. Developer IDs are generated internally by Apigee and are not guaranteed to stay the same over time. 


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