The Definitive Guide explains how you can easily delete an entire index (DELETE /my_index) but not a single type.
I assumed DELETE /my_index/my_type would work, but it doesn't.
I can delete each document individually (DELETE /my_index/my_type/my_id) but that's a pain and very inefficient.
I'm in pre-production and I want to delete a particular type, rather than the whole index, so that I can set up the mappings correctly.
Thanks and kind regards
