Cleanup indices

Over the years we’ve build up some few hundered indices.
I need to clean that up, however the web frontend doesn’t allow me to mass delete them.
I read I could (obviously) build an application that does that for me using the API clients, but I guess I’m not the first one to have that issue. Is there a ready made thing around, where I just need to throw credentials in and get going?
Writing software for such a routine task seem weird to me.

Hey @alex1,

Thank you for contacting us.

So you could head over to https://www.algolia.com/explorer/indices and select multiple indices, then delete them. Although it’s per page basis, you would still be able to do it fast since we’re only talking about a few hundred indices.

As you mentioned, the second solution would be to write a script for it using our API Clients.

I hope that helps!

Hi Guy,
thanks. That still takes a while. Would be brilliant if we could get page size from 10 to 100 or hide replicas.

That’s a good feedback, I will forward this to the corresponding team.

Sorry if this task is taking longer than it should, we’ll definitely note it on our end and try to improve this.

Cheers!
