Delete Organizations

When deleting an organization, the association between all users’ membership and the deleted organization will be removed, though the users themselves will not be deleted from your tenant.

Once confirmed, this operation cannot be undone.

You can delete organizations using either the Auth0 Dashboard or the Management API.

Auth0 Dashboard

To delete an organization via the Auth0 Dashboard:

  1. Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Organizations, and select the organization you want to delete.

  2. Scroll to locate the Danger Zone section, select Delete, and confirm.

Management API

Make a DELETE call to the Delete Organization endpoint. Be sure to replace the ORG_ID and MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN placeholder values with your organization ID and Management API Access Token, respectively.

curl --request DELETE \
  --url 'https://YOUR_DOMAIN/api/v2/organizations/ORG_ID' \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN'
var client = new RestClient("https://YOUR_DOMAIN/api/v2/organizations/ORG_ID");
var request = new RestRequest(Method.DELETE);
request.AddHeader("authorization", "Bearer MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN");
IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);
