You can delete the permissions of a configuration element by using the Orchestrator REST API. You can delete the existing permissions of a configuration element before you set new permissions.


  1. Make a GET request and retrieve the ID of the configuration element from the list of returned configuration elements:
    GET http://{orchestrator_host}:{port}/vco/api/configurations/
  2. Make a DELETE request at the URL of the configuration element's permissions:
    DELETE http://{orchestrator_host}:{port}/vco/api/configurations/{configuration_elementID}/permissions/


If the DELETE request is successful, you receive the status code 204, and the response body is empty.
