DELETE url

This works for me:

delete URL(tPostURL)


tPostURL is the URL you want to send the delete to. The URL can include an API call, authentication token, etc.

I do have LC Business, but don’t need to use tsNet for this specifically, although I do use it for some other things.

You can find all the commands, etc. for tsNet here:

as well as some sample stacks that I have found invaluable for seeing how it all works.

Best,
Steve MacLean
