URI /RESTfm/{database}/bulk/{layout} Delete - DELETE

URI /RESTfm/{database}/bulk/{layout}

Deletes multiple records in {database} and {layout}, from the recordIDs provided.

Note: The message must be submitted using HTTP POST since HTTP DELETE cannot contain a message body.

Required query string parameter

RFMmethod=DELETE A method override of DELETE must be specified as HTTP DELETE cannot contain a message body.

Optional alternative {recordID} format - {unique-key-recordID}

<fieldName>=<uniqueValue> May be used in place of the FileMaker internal record identifier {recordID}.
The uniqueValue should be in the same format as a FileMaker Find.
e.g. an exact match for '1234' would be '==1234'
The final string would then appear as: 'myField===1234'

Example message, URI and response

Note: We override the method with DELETE, since this message must be submitted with POST.
