Deleting a Resource

The DELETE method can be used with either a folder or a resource. For the delete to succeed:

The logged in user must have read-delete, read-write-delete, or administer permission on the folder or resource.
The resource must not be a dependency of any other resource, for example the data source of a JasperReport. In this case, you must modify or delete the other resource first.
If the target is a folder, the above requirements must be satisfied for every resource and folder it contains, including any those contained recursively in subfolders to any level.
