Deleting Files

The result files that are associated with a transcription request can be immediately deleted using /transcribe/result's DELETE method. This is typically done after the results have been successfully retrieved. If you are using curl, your example call would be very similar to your call to the /transcribe/result's GET method, passing the requestid of the result that you want to delete as a parameter.

For example, to use curl to delete the result whose URL you could retrieve using the requestid700e7496-4fce-4963-aa7b-b3b26600f813, you would issue a command like the following:

curl -X DELETE "http://blaze_name:17171/transcribe/result?token=123e4567e89b12d3a456426655440000&requestid=700e7496-4fce-4963-aa7b-b3b26600f813"

Source audio files are always deleted from the system automatically as soon as a request is transcribed. Result files are deleted automatically as soon as a successful POST is made to a specified callback server, or deleted automatically after the results object lifetime has been reached (14 days).
