Sending a message body on a DELETE request might cause some servers to reject the request.
But you still can send data to the server using URL parameters. This is usually an ID of the resource you want to delete.
The DELETE method is defined to be idempotent, which means that sending the same HTTP DELETE request multiple times will have the same effect on the server and will not additionally affect the state or cause additional side effects.
The following example demonstrates sending a DELETE request to the server:
And the server response:
HTTP DELETE Response CodesA successful response MUST be 200 (OK) if the server response includes a message body, 202 (Accepted) if the DELETE action has not yet been performed, or 204 (No content) if the DELETE action has been completed but the response does not have a message body.
