Delete Corpus API Definition

The Delete Corpus API lets you delete a corpus. To delete a corpus, specify the customer_id and corpus_id. Upon successful completion, space quota consumed by the corpus will be freed, and the corpus will no longer be useable for future indexing or querying.


The corpus_id assigned to the corpus will not be reused.
