Removing a Table

You can use either the MCS or maprcli table delete command to drop a MapR Database table.

Removing a Table Using MCS

To remove a table:
  1. Go to the table information page.
  2. Click Remove Table.
    The Remove Table confirmation window displays.
  3. Click Remove Table to remove the table.
    After the table is removed, data in the table cannot be recovered.

Removing a Table Using the CLI or REST API

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
