delete

Matches requests with HTTP method DELETE.

Signature

def delete: Directive0

Description

This directive filters an incoming request by its HTTP method. Only requests with method DELETE are passed on to the inner route. All others are rejected with a MethodRejectionMethodRejection, which is translated into a 405 Method Not Allowed response by the default RejectionHandler.

Example

Scala
val route = delete { complete("This is a DELETE request.") }

// tests:
Delete("/") ~> route ~> check {
  responseAs[String] shouldEqual "This is a DELETE request."
}
Java
import static akka.http.javadsl.server.Directives.complete;
import static akka.http.javadsl.server.Directives.delete;

final Route route = delete(() -> complete("This is a DELETE request."));

testRoute(route).run(HttpRequest.DELETE("/")).assertEntity(
    "This is a DELETE request.");
