Delete entry

Delete an entry.

Code sample

Java

Before trying this sample, follow the Java setup instructions in the Data Catalog quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Data Catalog Java API reference documentation.

import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.DataCatalogClient;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.DeleteEntryRequest;
import com.google.cloud.datacatalog.v1.EntryName;
import java.io.IOException;

// Sample to delete a entry
public class DeleteEntry {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String projectId = "MY_PROJECT_ID";
    String location = "MY_LOCATION";
    String entryGroupId = "MY_ENTRY_GROUP_ID";
    String entryId = "MY_ENTRY_ID";
    EntryName entryName = EntryName.of(projectId, location, entryGroupId, entryId);
    deleteEntry(entryName);
  }

  public static void deleteEntry(EntryName entryName) throws IOException {
    // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
    // once, and can be reused for multiple requests. After completing all of your requests, call
    // the "close" method on the client to safely clean up any remaining background resources.
    try (DataCatalogClient client = DataCatalogClient.create()) {
      DeleteEntryRequest request =
          DeleteEntryRequest.newBuilder().setName(entryName.toString()).build();
      client.deleteEntry(request);
      System.out.println("Entry deleted successfully");
    }
  }
}
