Deleting a collection

A collection is deleted by calling deleteCollection().

Example 74. Deleting a collection


Deleting a collection automatically deletes all documents contained in that collection.


Deleting a collection can take significant time for some services. You cannot re-create a collection with the same name until the collection and all its documents have been completely removed.

Deleting a non-existent collection will have no effect.
