Delete a specific document by ID

You can delete a specific document if you have its documentId. You can either delete it permanently, or just send it to Trash. You can retrieve it from the Trash, or leave it there and it will get deleted after some designated amount of time.

Method and API

Play with the API Explorer:

DELETE /document/v1/{documentId}



Only documentId is mandatory, and it must be an AODocs documentId not a Drive fileId.

Note: To get an AODocs document (including its documentId) by the Drive ID of one of its attachments, use the GET /document/v1/drive/{driveId} method.

Sample request



Because this is a deletion of a resource, there is no resource to return in the response. The response returns an HTTP code of 204 (NO CONTENT).
