Dropping Tables

Use either the maprcli command table delete or MCS to drop a MapR-DB table.

maprcli command

Run the command maprcli table delete -path <path> .

  • For a path on the local cluster, start the path at the volume mount point. For example, for a table named test under a volume with a mount point at /volume1, specify the following path: /volume1/test
  • For a path on a remote cluster, you must also specify the cluster name in the path. For example, for a table named customer under volume1 in the sanfrancisco cluster, specify the following path:/mapr/sanfrancisco/volume1/customer


  1. Open the table.
  2. Click Delete Table. MCS asks you to confirm that you want to delete the table.
