Delete targets by role

Last updated

This script demonstrates how to programmatically delete deployment targets with the specified role from the Octopus Server.

Usage

Provide values for the following:

  • Octopus URL
  • Octopus API Key
  • Name of the space you want to use
  • Name of the role to use

This script will delete deployment targets matching the specified role. This operation is destructive and cannot be undone.
