Delete Contacts

DELETE /marketing/contacts

This endpoint can be used to delete one or more contacts.

The query parameter ids must set to a comma-separated list of contact IDs for bulk contact deletion.

The query parameter delete_all_contacts must be set to "true" to delete all contacts.

You must set either ids or delete_all_contacts.

Deletion jobs are processed asynchronously.

Twilio SendGrid recommends exporting your contacts regularly as a backup to avoid issues or lost data.
