Delete a file or a folder. Path is required for a successful operation.

  • Recursive=false is the default behavior, and is usually used only for files.
        EXEC DeleteObject Path=[directory1/file1.txt]
  • Recursive=true is used when you want to delete a folder along with its content.
        EXEC DeleteObject Path=[directory1], Recursive=true
  • DeleteType=[FILES] is used when you want to delete only the files inside a folder. The sub folders will not be deleted. In this case, use Recursive=false (it is the default behavior).
        EXEC DeleteObject Path=[directory1], DeleteType=[FILES]
  • If you use DeleteType=[FILES] and Recursive=true:
        EXEC DeleteObject Path=[directory1], DeleteType=[FILES], Recursive=true
    then it would have the same effect as:
        EXEC DeleteObject Path=[directory1], Recursive=true
    It is also slower, so it is not recommended.
