Codeless Reference



Argument                Description
table name Name of the data table where an object will be deleted from.
object or objectId This parameter expects either a unique identifier(objectId) of the record that must be deleted in the data table, or a data object which must contain the objectId property which identifies the object in the database. String value or number.

This operation does not return a value.

Consider the following records in the employees data table:


The example below deletes the object associated with the objectId: "8948E66F-67DE-441B-A7F8-DAB89965E27C".


The result of this operation will look as shown below after the Codeless logic runs. As you can see, the object with the name "Bob Smith" associated with the objectId: "8948E66F-67DE-441B-A7F8-DAB89965E27C" has been deleted from the data table.


You can also delete a record from the data table by passing an object to the operation. The object must have the objectId property and the unique identifier of the record that must be deleted. The example below deletes a record from the data table using an object that contains the following objectId: "FEA94D74-BEA1-4F28-BDDD-FB22CFEB747E"


The result of this operation is a deleted record from the employees data table:
