Hi,

I would like to remove files and directories via the REST API. I think I got a basic understanding of how to do it, but I m not sure what I am doing wrong.

 

This is my API call:

 

curl -H "Accept: application/xml"  -s --noproxy "*" -k -s  --basic -u admin:password  -X GET "http://localhost:8080/pentaho/plugin/data-access/api/repo/files/tree"

 

This is what the documentation says:

 

/repo/files/tree
GET
Retrieve the recursive list of files from root of the repository based on the filters provided.

 

But I get nothing back.

What I want to do I to get a list of all files and directories, and then I would like to delete everything.

 

Maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks and Regards

Dirk
