Delete Object

The DELETE command is used to delete a specified object. After an object is deleted, any subsequent GET, HEAD, POST, or DELETE operations return a 404 Not Found error code.

For static large objects, you can add the multipart-manifest=delete query parameter. This operation deletes the segment objects and if all deletions succeed, this operation deletes the manifest object.

Normally the DELETE operation does not return a response body. However, with the multipart-manifest=delete query parameter, the response body contains a list of manifest and segment objects and the status of their delete operations.
