Deleting Containers

All objects within a container must first be deleted before the container can be deleted. To find out whether a container contains any objects, use a HEAD request.

Any user with the Service Administrator role can perform this task.

For information about deleting containers by using the Java library, see deleteContainer in Java API Reference for Oracle Cloud Storage Service.

For information about deleting containers by using the REST API, see Delete Container in OpenStack Object Storage Service API Reference.
