# DELETE /applications/application/{appid}¶

Delete the Application identified by {appid}. An Application may not be deleted while there are users associated with it. You must first delete or remove the application association from any users before you will be able to delete the Application. This prevents orphaned User objects from being allowed to exist in the system. Additionally, the Application’s status must be set to DISABLED.

## Return¶

A boolean response explaining whether the DELETE call was successful or not.
