Delete List using automation/command?

L1 Bithead

Hi All,


I wanted to delete a list using a playbook tasks, but I dont find any automation that can achieve it. It only have createList, and remove data from List


May I know any workaround for it?

Hey Jia Kai, you could write an automation that makes an API call to delete the list - you'll need to have the Demisto REST API integration configured for this.

The API method used is POST to the following endpoint: /lists/delete (if multi-tenant: /acc_<tenant_name>/lists/delete )

And the request body would be:{"id":"<list_name>"}


The basic script would look something like this (add whatever is needed to print a result, set to context, etc.)


listName = demisto.args().get("list_name")
body = {"id": listName}

demisto.executeCommand("demisto-api-post", {"uri":"/lists/delete", "body":body})

Why isn't this native to xsoar?

@Sec101 I am going to create a wrapper automation for this very functionality. Of course, this will be dependent on the "Core REST API" being configured and enabled. 

I ran into a scenario requiring this capability and just completed a working demo.
