Hi Saul,

 

You can use the 'clear' managed folder method: https://developer.dataiku.com/latest/api-reference/python/managed-folders.html#dataiku.Folder.clear

For example in a notebook:

 

import dataiku
myfolder = dataiku.Folder("<managed folder id>")
myfolder.clear()

I still confused with APIs, sometimes is dataiku.core, other times dataikuapi...

Is it possible to perform clear using python dataikuapi?

This is a bit confusing indeed but there are actually two Python APIs:

import dataiku: Use when running inside Dataiku (ie in a DSS Recipe or Jupyter Notebook)

import dataikuapi: Use when running outside Dataiku (ie from a Python shell or from another Python runtime environment like your local PC).

The outside API is a REST base API so it can also be used from any other language or program that supports REST APIs including manually using Python requests. 

The two APIs should have equivalent functionality but there can be differences sometimes. To add more confusion the dataikuapi package name is dataiku-api-client. Always use the Inside API if you can as it will be faster.

I would like a more user friendly API, current APIs (Core and Client) are dissimilar and they doesn't share the same functionality, so we as end users have spend time searching how to achieve the same functionalities, takes this example:

folder.png

Method clear, for Folders is only available on Core API, and for Dataset is only on Client API. That doesn't make any sense!

The lesson learned here is take a look in both APIs, functionality you are looking for must be in one of the two.

Good Luck Dataikers!
