Delete multiple objects from a custom URL category? (or reset it?)

Hi,

 

I'm managing a custom URL category via API calls. Domains are added, removed. Works well. 

But, in some cases, I'd like to remove multiple domains or, more efficiently, clear the category (remove all entries) with one API call.

Any idea how to achieve this?

 

Cheers,

/x

'Delete' allows to delete one and only 1 entry.

 

you can use 'edit' to rewrite entirely the content of a node.

Tx for your reply.

What do you mean by "rewrite the content of a node" exactly?

 

Let's assume that I've this custom category: "custom_url" with 3 domains:

"domaina.net"

"domainb.org"

"domainc.com"

 

I need to populate this category with a _new_ list of domains (some are the same, some are new, some are removed). Example:

 

"domaina.net"

"domaind.be"

"domainf.co.uk"

 

What would be the best approach to populate the category with the new domains?

 

Cheers,

Do you know the limit of an API call (most browsers have a limit of 8KB for HTTP requests).

The custom URL category that I've to replace has a lot of entries.
