Deleting Schemas From Cloudera Schema Registry It is very easy to delete schemas from Cloudera Schema Registry if you need to do so. I recommend downloading them and having a backup first. Let's look at our schema Well let's get rid of that junk . Here is the documentation For CDF Datahub in CDP Public Cloud https://docs.cloudera.com/cdf-datahub/7.0.2/using-schema-registry/topics/csp-deleting-schemas.html Example curl -X DELETE "http://MYSERVERHASACOOLNAME.DEV:7788/api/v1/schemaregistry/schemas/ junk " -H "accept: application/json" Where junk is the name of my schema. You could call this REST API from NiFi, a DevOps tool or just a simple CURL like listed above. Knox and other security may apply.
