Delete Waste Data

Updated on June 28, 2021

Description

This web service deletes waste data from a specified meter based on a specified optional date range. The meter must already be shared to you and you must have read write access. This web service only supports waste meters. Deleting the waste data is permanent and cannot be undone.

NOTE: If you misspell the "startDate" or "endDate" parameter then the resulting behavior is equivalent to if the parameter was omitted. For example, if you run this web service and misspelled both date range parameters then all of the waste data for that meter will be deleted which is the default behavior.
