How to put unwanted data in the trash

Sometimes you may want to put the unwanted data in the trash before deleting it altogether.

Now, let’s see how to put unwanted data in the trash.

  • The trash function marks the records as trash

trash(type: HypiMutationType!, arcql: String!): Int!

  • The get and find queries do not display the trashed objects by default
  • ArcQL filter is used to select the records to be trashed

Just like the previous post, we will work with the same ReadObject data type here.

type ReadObject {
   field1: String
   field2: Int

Sample Query

mutation {
  trash(type: ReadObject, 
  arcql: " = '01FH5MKT5ZXHA7KNKTAK48H6KP'")
  "data": {
    "trash": 1

The trash function returns the number of records marked as trash.

Query with Variables

mutation trashObject($type: HypiMutationType!, $arcql: String!) {
  trash(type: $type, arcql: $arcql)

#query variables
  "type": "ReadObject",
  "arcql": " = '01FH5MKT5ZXHA7KNKTAK48H6KP'"

Please note query variables has the form of JSON.
