Delete a Content Export Attachment

Jump to solution

Is it possible to delete a content export attachment, the downloadable file? Or do they expire after n days?

For reference, the downloadable files here: https://xxxxxxx.instructure.com/courses/:course_id/content_exports

 @cathompson1 ​, I think the only way to delete a content export attachment is to clear the content of the entire course (which is overkill and normally not ever recommended). I just checked one of my long standing courses and I've got export files going back a while (July 2014) so it seems that they don't expire either.

Thank you. It is good to know that files don't expire. I ended up finding a way to delete single files through the Canvas API.
