Can't delete Collection within a Document DB account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am unable to delete a collection from within a Document DB account in the portal. Is this expected? The only option I have is to delete the entire account.

  • You can delete a collection from an account in the Azure portal.

    In the portal, click NoSQL (DocumentDB) on the far left, then select the account from which you want to delete a collection, then on the Overview blade, you should see a Collections tile. Right-click the collection in the Collections tile and click Delete Collection.

  • Thanks! This is somewhat different than usual where the Delete usually appears in the next blade at the top or there is a '...' at the end of the tile. Perhaps providing a '...' at the end of the Collections tile would be intuitive enough.
