The DELETE verb

allows you to delete a single Task that has not yet been completed.  The platform will immediately remove the Task from the assigned User.

You may use either JSON or XML formats in your request.

You indicate this by setting the ContentType HTTP header as “application/json” or “application/xml”.

If no ContentType is specified, XML format is assumed.

The required and optional parameters for a DELETE to the Tasks API are outlined below.
