You’ll rarely (if ever) need to delete a Coveo organization, unless you originally created this organization for a specific purpose such as testing, and this purpose is now finished. In such a case, you may delete the obsolete organization.

Deleting a Coveo organization is permanent. Make sure you know what you’re doing before you perform this call.

Use the Delete an organization operation to permanently remove a specific organization from the Coveo Platform.

You can also perform this action from the Coveo Administration Console Settings page. See Organization details.

  • It’s impossible to delete an organization that’s in read-only mode (see Organization status). Often, this means that your organization is inactive, and you need to resume it first.

  • Upon deletion, Coveo keeps your organization backup until the end of the retention period. If an organization is restored within the retention period, the data will still be available.
