How It Works

The delete is the Task API endpoint responsible for deleting specified task. Let’s consider how it typically works:

The delete endpoint has a certain URL that you send your HTTP POST requests to initiate a removing task from project file. The URL: /tasks/v4.0/tasks/delete.

To delete specified task, you need to provide a project file and task uid to select which task you want to delete.

Once the Task API receives your request, it starts the removing process. It parses the project file, delete requested task and return project file to you.

After the removing is complete, the Task API sends back an HTTP response to your request that includes a downloadable link to the project file.
