Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products.

Python 3.10 is now available in preview.


Deletes a key from memcache.

key Key to delete. See docs on Client for detils.
seconds Optional number of seconds to make deleted items 'locked' for 'add' operations. Value can be a delta from current time (up to 1 month), or an absolute Unix epoch time. Defaults to 0, which means items can be immediately added. With or without this option, a 'set' operation will always work. Float values will be rounded up to the nearest whole second.
namespace a string specifying an optional namespace to use in the request.

DELETE_NETWORK_FAILURE (0) on network failure, DELETE_ITEM_MISSING (1) if the server tried to delete the item but didn't have it, orDELETE_SUCCESSFUL (2)` if the item was actually deleted. This can be used as a boolean value, where a network failure is the only bad condition.
