    • resource (String): [resource] that need to be deleted.
    • predicate (String): Query string specifying (where) predicate. More info on predicates here (Optional).
  • An optional logger object having four functions (info, warn, error and debug).

                                                               [default: "false"]
  --where, -w                specify where predicate.
  --logLevel                 Logging level: error, warn, info or debug.
                                                               [default: "info"]

Then you can delete resource using the cli:

- Without predicate
  resource-deleter -p my-project-key -r my-resource

- With predicate
  resource-deleter -p my-project-key -r my-resource -w my-desired-key

Info on flags

  • The --output flag specifies where to output the deleted resource. Several notes on this flag:
    • The default location for status report logging is the standard output.
    • If no output path is specified, the deleted resource output will be logged to the standard output as a result, status reports will be logged to a resource-deleter.log file in the current directory.
  • The where flag specifies an optional (where) query predicate to be included in the request. This predicate should be wrapped in single quotes ('single quoted predicate'). More info on predicates here.


For more direct usage, it is possible to use this module directly:

import resourceDeleter from '@commercetools/resource-deleter'

const options = {
  apiConfig: {
    apiUrl: '',
    host: '',
    project_key: 'my-project-key',
    credentials: {
      clientId: '*********',
      clientSecret: '*********',
  accessToken: '123456yuhgfdwegh675412wefb4rgb',
  resource: 'my-resource',
  predicate: 'key="my-desired-key"',
  logger: {
    error: console.error,
    warn: console.warn,
    info: console.log,
    debug: console.debug,

const resourceDeleter = new ResourceDeleter(options)

  .then(() => {
    console.log('resource deleted')
  .catch((error) => {
    // handle error
