You can delete an Atlas Search index in the Atlas UI, or programmatically by using mongosh, the Atlas CLI, the API, or a supported MongoDB Driver in your preferred language.


You can't use the mongosh command or driver helper methods to delete Atlas Search indexes on M0, M2, or M5 Atlas clusters. To create and manage Atlas Search indexes using mongosh or the driver, upgrade to a dedicated cluster tier.

You must have at least the readWriteAnyDatabase role or readWrite access to the database that contains the indexes. To learn more, see Built-in Roles or Specific Privileges.
