Delete files OPEN-AI with API call

Id like to make an API call to delete all files in OpenAI

The documentation mentions this

Source: https://platform.openai.com/docs/api-reference/files/retrieve

I have tried to pass it through the body and through the query but they both return a 404 response, here is my setup for both attempts:

Id like to use the body response so I can array all IDs to delete everything.

Welcome to the Make community!

You inserted an Absolute (full) URL.

If you read the description below it, it says

Enter a path relative … for example…

Yes will do! unfortunately its throwing another error so i cant mark it solved yet.

You didn’t follow the URL format exactly. The OpenAI documentation says you have to insert the file ID as part of the URL.

There is no Body involved. Leave it blank.

You can also complete this brand new course/tutorial in the Make Academy on how to use external APIs — API calls with HTTP modules

  • API and Endpoints
  • Header and body
  • Multipart/form-data
  • OAuth 2.0

I see, this does work thanks!

So I just need to call the url with different IDs to remove all of them, I cant put more IDs in a single call then I guess?

Yes that is correct. You can only do what the external API allows you to do.

I’m still having some issues with the delete API.

Any suggestion?

Welcome to the Make community!

Could you please create a separate topic for this?

While it’s tempting to continue an existing thread, a more effective approach would be to start a new topic. It helps other community users to respond to your query, and keeps our space organised for everyone. If you start a new conversation you are also more likely to get help from other users. You can refer others back to a related topic by including that link in your question. Thank you for understanding and keeping our community neat and tidy.

The “New Topic” link can be found in the top-right of the header:
