I'm trying to run a CRUL command to delete a configuration

 

The PID is: com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService

 

Tried these but not working:

 

curl -v -u admin:admin http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService -d "action=DELETE"

curl -v -u admin:admin -X DELETE http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService

curl -u admin:admin -F":operation=delete" -F":applyTo=/system/console/configMgr/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService" http://localhost:4502

curl -u admin:admin -F":operation=delete" http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService

 

 Using "DELETE" shows "Method not allowed. Checked "Apache Sling Referrer Filter" and "DELETE" is not listed. 

 

What am i missing?

Hello @surenk,

Apparently you're deleting the config from a wrong location. The location of config can be under /apps/<project_name>/config or /apps/system/config.

Please try with below command: 

 

curl -u admin:admin -H User-Agent:curl -F":operation=delete" http://localhost:4502/apps/<project_name>/config/<pid>.config

Thanks @Jineet_Vora There is a small change to your answer but thanks for pointing me.

The solution:

When a user edits an OSGI config, a copy is written by AEM at `/apps/system/config` . The config needs to be deleted from here, using below command. And on deleting this, if there is code for this configuration, then the default osgi configuration is created again using the default values as specified in code.

  • The path of the actual osgi configuration will be deployed by code at /apps/myproject/config/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService

  • On editing the config, a new node is created by AEM at /apps/system/config/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService.config

 
The delete command:
 

 

curl -u admin:admin -F":operation=delete" http://localhost:4502/apps/system/config/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService.config

 

 

The code based config can also be deleted as:

 

 

curl -u admin:admin -F":operation=delete" http://localhost:4502/apps/myproject/config/com.myproject.aem.core.services.impl.ApiSettingsService
