Deletes a time series (data stream). If you delete a time series that's associated with an asset property, the asset property still exists, but the time series will no longer be associated with this asset property.

To identify a time series, do one of the following:

  • If the time series isn't associated with an asset property, specify the alias of the time series.

  • If the time series is associated with an asset property, specify one of the following:

    • The alias of the time series.

    • The assetId and propertyId that identifies the asset property.
