Delete Things

You can remove a thing by deleting it from the Kii Cloud. Once the thing is deleted, the following information will be deleted:

  • All thing and owner information (note that the owners' Users and Groups are not deleted).
  • All data stored in the thing scope (buckets, objects and topics).

The following sample code shows how to delete a thing.

Android

  • try {
      // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
      KiiThing thing = KiiThing.loadWithVendorThingID("rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS");
    
      // Delete the thing.
      thing.delete();
    } catch (AppException e) {
      // Handle the error.
    } catch (IOException e) {
      // Handle the error.
    }
  • // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
    KiiThing.loadWithVendorThingID("rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS", new KiiCallback<KiiThing>() {
      @Override
      public void onComplete(KiiThing result, Exception e) {
        if (e != null) {
          // Handle the error.
          return;
        }
    
        // Delete the thing.
        result.delete(new KiiCallback<KiiThing>() {
          @Override
          public void onComplete(KiiThing result, Exception e) {
            if (e != null) {
              // Handle the error.
              return;
            }
          }
        });
      }
    });

iOS

Swift 3:

  • let thing : KiiThing
    
    do{
      // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
      thing = try KiiThing.loadSynchronous(withVendorThingID: "rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS")
    }catch(let error as NSError){
      // Handle the error.
      return
    }
    
    do{
      // Delete the thing.
      try thing.deleteSynchronous()
    } catch let error as NSError {
      // Handle the error.
      return
    }
  • // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
    KiiThing.load(withVendorThingID: "rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS") { (thing , error) -> Void in
      if error != nil {
        // Handle the error.
        return
      }
    
      // Delete the thing.
      thing!.delete({ (deletedThing , error : Error?) -> Void in
        if error != nil {
          // Handle the error.
          return
        }
      })
    }

Objective-C:

  • NSError* error = nil;
    
    // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
    KiiThing* thing = [KiiThing loadSynchronousWithVendorThingID:@"rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS"
                                                           error:&error];
    
    // Delete the thing.
    [thing deleteSynchronous:&error];
    if (error != nil) {
      // Handle the error.
      return;
    }
  • // Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
    [KiiThing loadWithVendorThingID:@"rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS"
                              block:^(KiiThing *thing, NSError *error) {
      if (error != nil) {
        // Handle the error.
        return;
      }
    
      // Delete the thing.
      [thing delete:^(KiiThing *thing, NSError *error) {
        if (error != nil) {
          // Handle the error.
          return;
        }
      }];
    }];

JavaScript

// Instantiate a thing by vendor thing ID.
KiiThing.loadWithVendorThingID("rBnvSPOXBDF9r29GJeGS",{
  success: function(thing) {
    // Delete the thing.
    thing.deleteThing({
      success: function(theThing) {
        // Do something.
      },
      failure: function(theThing, error) {
        // Handle the error.
      }
    });
  },
  failure: function(error) {
    // Handle the error.
  }
});
