How to Delete All Jobs Using the REST API

Run the following commands to delete all jobs in a Databricks workspace.

  1. Identify the jobs to delete and list them in a text file:

    curl -X GET -u "Bearer: <token>" https://<databricks-instance>/api/2.0/jobs/list | grep -o -P 'job_id.{0,6}' | awk -F':' '{print $2}' >> job_id.txt
    
  2. Run the curl command in a loop to delete the identified jobs:

    while read line
    do
    job_id=$line
    curl -X POST -u "Bearer: <token>" https://<databricks-instance>/api/2.0/jobs/delete -d '{"job_id": '"$job_id"'}'
    done < job_id.txt
