Deleting Security Objects

Caution! Deleting a security object cannot be undone. Before deleting a security object, make sure that you have a backup of the security object or do not need the security object anymore. If a security object has the Export operation enabled, it can be backed up by wrapping it and storing it outside of Fortanix Daya Security Manager (DSM).

Prerequisites

Deleting security objects (keys) requires a Fortanix DSM account, a group, and a user or application configured in that group. You must also have a security object to delete. See the Fortanix Data Security Manager Getting Started Guide for more details.

Authorization and Configuration

You must first authenticate and optionally configure a default API client as described in Configure API Client and Client Authentication. You may authenticate as a user or as an application. The user or application must be a member of the group that the security object belongs to in order to delete it.

Create a SecurityObjectsApi Client Object

Deleting security objects is performed with a SecurityObjectsApi object.

import com.fortanix.sdkms.v1.SecurityObjectsApi;

SecurityObjectsApi sobjectsApi = new SecurityObjectsApi();

Make the Delete Call

Deleting is performed with the deleteSecurityObject() method of the SecurityObjectsApi object. The UUID of the key to be deleted is passed to the method.

sobjectsApi.deleteSecurityObject(<UUID of key to be deleted>);
