Delete trust data

Repositories that contain trust metadata cannot be deleted until the trust metadata is removed. Doing so requires use of the Notary CLI.

To delete trust metadata from a repository:

Run the following command to delete the trust metadata. You will be prompted for your user name and password, as displayed in the example output.

notary delete <registry-host-name>/<namespace>/<repository> --remote

Example output:

Deleting trust data for <registry-host-name>/<namespace>/<repository>
Enter username: <user-name>
Enter password: <password>
Successfully deleted local and remote trust data for <registry-host-name>/<namespace>/<repository>


If you do not include the --remote flag, Notary deletes local cached content but does not delete data from the Notary server.
