Delete a feed

This script demonstrates how to programmatically delete an existing feed in Octopus.

Usage

Provide values for:

  • Octopus URL
  • Octopus API Key
  • Name of the space to use
  • Name of the feed to delete

This script will delete the feed with the specified name. This operation is destructive and cannot be undone.
