Kibana APM sourcemaps delete all


I have uploaded many sourcemaps to Kibana/APM at /api/apm/sourcemaps.

I know you can delete them using curl like it says here: RUM source map API | Kibana Guide [8.4] | Elastic

But is there anyway to delete all of them at the same time? Complete removal of all sourcemaps

Hi @mkf1,

Thanks for reaching out!

We don't have an endpoint to remove all sourcemaps at once.

You will need to do it programmatically. For example (node.js script):

const fs = require('fs')
const { request } = require('undici')

const auth = "ApiKey YOUR_API_KEY_HERE"

function getAllSourceMaps() {
    return request('http://localhost:5601/api/apm/sourcemaps', {
        headers: {
            "kbn-xsrf": true,
            Authorization: auth
    .then(( { body }) => body.json())

async function removeAllSourceMaps() {
    const { artifacts: sourceMaps } = await getAllSourceMaps()
    for (const sourceMap of sourceMaps) {
        await request(`http://localhost:5601/api/apm/sourcemaps/${}`, {
            method: 'DELETE',
            headers: {
                Authorization: auth,
                "kbn-xsrf": true,
                "content-type": "application/json"

    .then(() => {
        console.log("All sourcemaps have been removed")
    .catch((err) => {
        console.log("Something went wrong while removing sourcemaps", err)

Make sure you use your own API Key and that the endpoint points to your Kibana.

Let me know if this helps you.
